An Alabama teacher would take multiple buses every morning to get to school and when the parents of one of her students found out, they knew they had to help her out. Courtney Adeleye, who is the CEO and founder of The Mane Choice, a million-dollar company that makes vitamin infused hair care products, went to a local car dealership and bought a brand new 2018 Ford Focus.
Adeleye, her husband and their 11-year-old daughter showed at the school and surprised the dedicated teacher with the car, sharing a video of the touching moment on Instagram.
The teacher broke down in tears and hugged Adeleye and her husband when they told her the car was hers.
"I cannot believe this! Y'all just don't know," the teacher told them through tears.
When my husband tells me that the teacher who has been teaching my girls for the last few years has been catching multiple buses to get to and from work everyday in the hot sun and cold! He said we should give her something I said....say no more! When you ask me to define success....this is my response! (Give to those without expectations) . All glory to GOD! . She’s like legit the sweetest person you would ever want to meet!!! She said she never had a new car before! . BTW: My 11 year old did the recording! 🤦🏽♀️ . #themanechoice #whosthebawse #courtneyadeleye
Adeleye shared a second video showing the teacher happily recount all the things she will no longer have to deal with now that she can drive herself to school.
"No more sitting in the cold, no more riding the bus, no more waiting on somebody to come and pick me up, no more of any of those things. No more. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you."
