Fifth grader honored for returning $1,052

Fifth grader Vo Hong Hieu who returned a sum of VND24 million ($1,052) was honored yesterday by managers of Thinh Loc Primary School in Loc Ha District of the central province of Ha Tinh.

Before, on the way home, the student noticed a plastic bag with VND24 million and an ID card. He waited for a long time with expectation that the person who dropped the bag will come back but it turned hopeless.
Later, the boy asked his relatives to return the sum.
The sum was then given back to a woman in the same district.
The boy is a good student despite his poverty. His good deed is a shining example for his peers to follow, said school managers.
