Good Samaritan Provides Full Ride

On his Facebook page today, Coeur d'Alene High instructor Bruce Twitchell tells this wonderful story: "Good people in the CDA area.
Student today (Thursday) received a call slip from the office, from the Vice-principal. Gave it to her, she left. Came back about 10 minutes later with tears in her eyes, but also smiling. Turns out that while she was giving her senior project presentation, she impressed one of the judges. The judge wants to pay for her to go to college. Pay for it all. This is a student that had little ambition of going to college, one of the big reasons was the cost (and no way the family could even think about paying for it). Today she said now she wants to go to college. I have never seen her more excited. Good day at school today.
