Paying It Forward
These days, there is a deep collective appreciation for the people that protect our school campuses. With so many horrible things happening to make people feel unsafe, the ones that protect us on a daily basis need our prayers and blessings every day. This time, a few students at Georgia Tech had an idea to try and raise a few hundred dollars for their favorite Officer.

The students holiday gift to the campus Security Officer Burns was to show him how much they appreciate him. Each student gave what they could, and presented him with a card, along with a collection of $1600. In the video, the student says, “It’s not really about the money, it’s about how many people donated and how much we appreciate you.” The Officer was left in tears at the gesture as the room full of students cheered him on.
