Principal Who Works at Walmart for Students Gets $50K from Store

Good News Notes:

A high school principal in South Carolina is being recognized for working around the clock to help take care of his students.  

After learning about the economic hardships some of his students face, North Charleston High School Principal Henry Darby took a second job at Walmart, working the overnight shift several days a week in order to raise funds for students in need, the Today show reported.

‘I get emotional because when you’ve got children you’ve heard slept under a bridge, or a former student and her child are sleeping in a car…I wasn’t going to say no,’ he said during a Today interview that aired Friday.

‘At my age, we don’t ask for money, we just don’t,’ he added. ‘You just go ahead and do what you need to do.’

Although news of Darby’s generosity would eventually go viral, he initially kept the fact that he was working two jobs to himself — even from his manager at Walmart.  

‘I didn’t expect the attention,’ he said during a recent interview with WCBD. ‘I simply wanted to work for Walmart without fanfare and to use those resources for my students.'”
