Remember the honest parking boy in 2017 who returned the P7,000 he found? He finally finished his elementary education in a private school.
Back in 2017, a young boy named Andrey Macabuhay – who worked as a parking boy – earned praise from many netizens for his honesty. Dindo Lorenzo first shared the story of Andrey on Facebook and how the young boy returned the P7,000 cash he lost while he was at a fastfood restaurant. Andrey’s story instantly became viral until he received a pleasant surprise.
Aside from the small amount of cash from Dindo, Andrey received another reward. He was awarded by the Immaculate Conception Institutions a full scholarship until college. The scholarship includes his allowance, uniform, books, and lunch.
According to the school, they admired Andrey’s honesty and values. They said that he was a role model not only to his generation but also to older people. At that time, Andrey promised that he will work hard to one day save his family from poverty.
Years after, Andrey proved he is on the right track as he finally graduated in elementary school.
On Facebook, netizen Neil Mateo shared the good news.
He wrote, “Andrey Macabuhay, nakatapos na ng Elementary sa Immaculate Conception Academy (ICA). Naalala niyo ba si Andrey, ang parking boy sa McDo na tinuring na HONEST KID ng Santa Maria? Siya ang batang nakapulot ng perang nahulog ni Sir Dindo Lorenzo na kanyang ibinalik. Dahil sa kanyang katapatan ay nakatanggap siya ng scholarship hanggang kolehiyo mula sa ICA, ICP Senior High School at ICI College.” The post also showed Andrey’s graduation picture.
Truly, this story of an awesomely honest boy is something we shouldn’t forget. Why? Because it’s a story of kindness that goes back to the person who chose to be kind and honest – in this case, this young boy named Andrey.
An online user, Dindo Lorenzo, who posted this blessed experience with an indigent boy, have somehow become an “angel” who made good things possible for the latter.
More great things to happen for him!
