Eye On Boise

Doing the right thing…

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press:  REXBURG, Idaho (AP) — A 22-year-old woman who has been working as a housekeeper at a Rexburg hotel to save money for college turned in $5,000 she found in a bank envelope while cleaning a room. Kelsey Ricks says it was simply a matter of doing “what’s right.” Springhill Suites Marriott sales manager Ben Lee says the hotel was able to return the money to the businessman who had stayed in the room early last week. Ricks plans to attend BYU-Idaho and the money she turned in would have paid for nearly two semesters of tuition. She says she didn’t have to think twice about turning the money in, because that’s how she was raised. The businessman did not leave a tip or reward, but Ricks says that’s not why she turned in the money.
