Students Surprise Custodian With New Home After Fire Takes Hers
Brenda Hurst, lead custodian at Boiling Springs High School in South Carolina, lost her home last year after it burned down. The house, which Hurst grew up in and had been sharing with her brother, was destroyed and left her with nothing except her beloved bible.
"The top was burnt, the bottom was burnt, but everything else on the inside was still intact," Hurst said. "I give God the praise and the glory for that."
Former student Drew Peden explained that when the students at Boiling Springs High School heard about the fire at Hurst's home they all knew they had to do something.
"Ms. Brenda is really special to the school, because she always has a smile on her face," Peden said. "She's always that caring person, you know when somebody's just having a bad day, she's always the first person to run up to them and give them a hug. She's always there. She's at every sporting event ... going crazy. She's just the life of Boiling Springs High School."
The students teamed up with 'Carpenters for Christ' to build Hurst a brand new home!
"It was awesome, I just thank God for what he's done and for Boiling Springs High School and for all the students, businesses, Carpenters for Christ," Hurst said. "I just thank God for everything."
