About three years ago, two high school seniors named Ryan Kodat and Luke Arnold saw a homeless guy walking in a blizzard in Dwight, Illinois, about 70 miles outside Chicago.
So they gave him some extra clothes and a jacket. And he said he was trying to go see his dad in Springfield, which was a two-hour drive away. So they also gave him money for a train ticket.
Then last month, the superintendent of the school district got a letter from the guy, because not homeless anymore . . . he’s a MILLIONAIRE. His name is Wade Herter, and he recently inherited $1.2 million after his father passed away.
He never forgot what Ryan and Luke did for him . . . and he wanted to donate $10,000 to their high school.
He didn’t say what he wanted them to use it for. He just said he was donating it in his father’s memory.
So the school is going to start giving out two humanitarian awards each year, where students can nominate each other and win $500 for doing random acts of kindness.
