‘Hot Teacher’ Wins Award For Gonzaga

Matthew Root: DFO recently featured a story about Meghan Ridley, an outstanding teacher who resigned because of the predicted deleterious effects of Tom Luna’s so called reform legislation. She has been accepted into a Ph.D. program at Gonzaga. I am pleased to let DFO know that Ms. Ridley was one of the recipients of a graduate student award presented by my company this year. We make the monetary awards each year to students who demonstrate outstanding commitment to their discipline. We gave an award to Ms. Ridley because of the information that DFO presented here. Thanks for the knowledge, DFO.

DFO: I'm running this out front because it made my Friday. Sometimes, it's nice to know what I do here makes a difference in people's lives. Matthew's paying it forward reminds me of that story of Kendramama earlier this week in which she told of receiving a $1000 tip from customers along her newspaper route. All good.

Question: Have you been blessed by the unexpected generosity of another person recently?
