In August 2013, Dickey Richard, a State Farm Insurance Agent in Springfield, Tennessee, paid the school fees — $25 per student — of students in one fourth-grade class and one fifth-grade class at Greenbrier Elementary School in Greenbrier, Tennessee. The students number approximately 50. Mr. Richard, a former teacher, said, “Those teachers, they’ve been clients of mine all this time. They’re helping me put groceries on the table, so I wanted to do something nice for them.” The teachers had the pleasure of sending notes to parents informing them that the school fee had already been paid. Marinda Bratton, a parent whose daughter is in the fourth-grade class sponsored by Mr. Richard, was pleased to learn that she would not have to pay her daughter’s school fee. She said, “It took me by shock.  Twenty-five dollars doesn’t mean a lot to some people, but it means a lot to me right now.” She added that she would like to meet Mr. Richard: “I’d give him a hug and probably start crying.” The year 2013 was the second year in a row that Mr. Richard has done this good deed.
