Four college football players show it pays to be honest

When four football players from William Paterson University entered Buddy’s Small Lots general store, they did not know that it was closed.  The door was not locked and the lights were on. 

They were in search of sunglasses and batteries, but soon realized that no one was in the store.  What they did next surprised everyone.  The four college students found their items, then put their cash, including tax, on the counter.  Then they waved to the cameras and walked out!

When Marci Lederman, the store manager, came in, she was amazed at their honesty.  So amazed, that she found out who the honest individuals were and gave them each $50 store credit!

“They could have ransacked the store. They could have really done anything,” Marci Lederman said. “They were perfect gentlemen.”



And that's what's good,

Jon

Student sinks half court shot to win free tuition

  • Published in Sports

With College tuition going up every year, any kind of financial support is greatly appreciated.  Ball State University offers one Freshman every year a chance to win free tuition for their first year…The only catch is that they have to make a near-impossible half-court basketball shot!  The University has been doing this for a few years now, but nobody has successfully made the shot.  Markus Burden now has 11,084 (which is how much his tuition is) reasons to be excited now after he became the first student to sink the half-court shot!  An emotional Burton called his mother to tell her the exciting news, as she was equally pleased.  The whole crowd went crazy when he sunk the shot…take a look! J

 

 

Have a great day, and let the good news be yours,

Jeremy
