Special to Hawaii 24/7

Two Waimea Middle School seventh grade students — Luke Brouwer and Bodie Glasscock — made their families and school extremely proud by doing the right thing last week when they found a wallet at Parker Ranch Center and turned it in.

“I … looked inside and there was around 400 bucks in it (and credit cards),” Brouwer said. “Then Bodie and gave it to security.”

Principal John Colson learned about the incident from teacher Kara Onaka-Winters, so called in the students to acknowledge them for “living the school’s core value of Integrity – Doing the right thing no matter who is watching.”

As he presented them with a small gift certificate, he said: “The money you found may have been that person’s whole week’s pay … you did the right thing and we hope you enjoy this little reward!”

    should have kept the money and mailed the wallet back to the owner…it’s what’s commonly called the “stupid tax”
