Winston Lee, a history teacher in high school, has been working for 12 years now and he thought he had already seen everything. Well apparently, not quite.
Recently, Winston was checking on the test papers of the exam about World War II he had given to his 11th-grade students at Letcher County Central High School. While doing so, he came across a test paper that bears a note on the bottom of the sheet written by one of the students.
It says: “If you could, can you give my bonus points to whoever scores the lowest?” This was written by a student, who Winston calls as a “Straight A guy,” and Winston was “pleasantly surprised” with the kid’s generosity. “He is the type of kid that would often show compassion in the classroom,” he said.
The teacher decided to post the photo of the kid’s note on Facebook and it quickly went viral! “Have to shout this out. Had honestly never seen this…” he wrote. “One of my guys, a straight A+ guy, offers up his 5 bonus points to someone in need. Anyone. Totally offering up what is rightfully his, his earning, to any peer that may have been struggling especially hard the day of the test.”
He didn’t care if he considered them a friend, didn’t care if they were cool, didn’t matter to him what situation had caused them to score lower, he just wanted to “help, be kind, commit a loving act,” Winston continued. “This note gave me so much hope. Let us all be a little more like this young man!!”
Winston granted his A+ student’s wish and gave the extra 5 bonus points to a student who had the lowest score of 58—and that five points were just enough to make her pass the test!
“She was really thankful so it turned out great,” Winston said. “She does not know who gave her the points.”
Such a sweet act! It may be just 5 points, but it’s the 5 points that made a huge difference in the other student’s life.
