Student at Texas High School saves Christmas money to buy candy for staff


TEXARKANA, Texas (KTAL/KMSS) – A freshman at Texas High School recently used his Christmas money to buy candy bars for all the teachers and staff.

Truett Buchanan and his dad wrote positive messages to attach to each candy bar.

When a student organization found out about the Truett’s act of kindness, they decided to chip in and make sure that all of the teachers and staff received a sweet treat.

“They said it made them really happy and they kept asking who the student was and they said they appreciated it a lot,” said Truett.

Truett’s goal is to spread joy throughout the school.

“I’ve had teachers come up and tell me that this act has laid it upon their hearts. It’s been apart of their conversations that they also want to also do things to spread kindness and appreciation.”

The student leadership group has now decided to do random acts of kindness throughout the year.
