Former Student Sends Teacher $10,000 As A 'Thank You'
Teachers spend all year teaching, loving and watching over students. Sometimes they don't even get a 'thank you'. When it comes to this student, he made sure that wasn't the case. 37 years after graduating, Kevin Perz sent a special thank you to his former economics teacher, Marilyn Mecham. He spent years trying to track her down. When he finally did, he sent her a note with a $10,000 check enclosed. The note read, ""Hi Mrs. Mecham Ma'am! I enjoyed your class so much. You gave the students latitude and respect. You were the BEST teacher EVER."
This must have made her day! We should all go above and beyond to let people know what they mean to us. The money was a huge bonus, but sometimes a simple 'Thank You' is all we need.
