Daniel is 'caring, honest, compassionate'

My name is Mary Phillips. I am the aunt of Daniel Workman, who is 10 years old and attends Erwin Elementary. Daniel was recently baptized at White Springs Baptist Church.

Recently, while I was shopping for groceries at Wal-Mart, Daniel and my daughter, Karli, were in the game room playing.

After checking out, I went to the game room to get them and Daniel was standing beside the huge bubble gum machine. Daniel said he couldn’t go then because he was guarding the machine. It seems the back had come off of the machine and piles of quarters were in full view.

Daniel stood there guarding the machine to make sure none of the money was taken from the machine while my daughter went to get a Wal-Mart associate.

When he told me what happened, tears came into my eyes and I gave him a big hug and told him how proud I was of him and what a good person he is. 

This is just an example of what a fine young man Daniel is. He is a kind, caring, honest and compassionate person. His grades at school are excellent and he attends church regularly. I wanted to share this story about Daniel and let our community know what a fine young man we have in our town.
