Teen Saves Man And His Eight-Year-Old Son From Drowning

August 01, 2018

Jacob Boissonneault has been training as a soccer player with coach Donald Munro for three years now. The 14-year-old from Canada recently went with Munro’s family on a trip to Greig Lake where the coach took a boat out for the teen and his eight-year-old son Cohen to go for a swim.

The waves were pretty big and took Cohen under, so Munro jumped in to save his son, but the strong current made it tough for the two to stay afloat. He called to Jacob to start the boat and despite never having driven a boat before, the teen got it going and drove over to rescue his coach and Cohen. Jacob was able to pull his coach and the kid out of the water and thankfully, no one got hurt.

“I have this little guy that I’ve been mentoring and being his buddy for three years, showing him everything that I know,” Munro explains. “And he turned around and saved my life.”

Mom’s Bad Eyesight Leads To Surprise Lottery Win

August 01, 2018

When Armando Ortiz wasn’t able to watch the Connecticut Lottery’s Cash 5 results, he asked his mom to write down the numbers for him. She wrote that he matched four of the five numbers, so he was pleased thinking he’d won $300.

But when he went in to redeem his ticket, he was in for a happy surprise. He scanned his ticket in the ticket checker, but instead of $300, it said $97,328! Armando asked the retainer for a print out of the winning numbers, to double check, and that’s when he was told he’d actually won the top prize!

"The funny thing is, my mother apologized for getting one of the numbers wrong. She wrote down 28 instead of 23,” the big winner explains. “She said she couldn't see well without her glasses on.”

New Orleans School Reopens 13 Years After Hurricane Katrina

August 01, 2018

It’s been 13 years since Hurricane Katrina forced John F. Kennedy High School at Lake Area in New Orleans to close. The powerful storm devastated the building and the school has remained closed until now, but it’s just reopened for the 2018-2019 school year.

To celebrate the reopening, JFK alumni hosted a school supply giveaway for current students. The former students want to give back to the new ones, while reminding them of the school’s legacy. In addition to free backpacks stuffed with supplies, the teens were also treated to haircuts, food, and musical performances to kick off the school year.

"We feel like if we can show a kid how to come to school well-groomed with the proper equipment and supplies they need to succeed, then half of the battle is won," explains alumnus Kevin Williams.
