A Texas high school football player could have easily kept $1,500 in cash that he found in a shopping cart – but he did what he always does: the right thing.
Kameron Grigsby, 17, works at a HEB grocery story in Beaumont, Texas, and it is standard procedure for him to give the things customers leave in their shopping carts to his manager, he told KMBT.
On Saturday, he came across a wallet with $1,500 cash inside, and he didn’t hesitate to hand it over.
“I turned it in,” he said. “My first mind was this could be somebody’s bill money, car note, house note or mortgage.”
The senior at Central High School said lessons he learned on the football field help him to make the best decisions in life.
“You can always do the right thing, like our coach says, the right way,” he said. “You don’t have to always go astray. Stay on the right path and stay focused.”
Grisby finds personal items left by shoppers all the time, he said. Whenever he’s able to return a purse or cell phone to an owner, they are always greatful, he said.
“I always believe you get it back three-fold,” he said.
