It is hard to find most honest adults who would turn in money that didn’t belong to them. However, one sixth grader says she never thought twice about it.

Tumia Johnson was nominated by her teacher. She found a wallet inside her school, School No. 36.  Officials say she never looked inside it and immediately turned it in. 

Tumia says it was an easy decision.

Tumia Johnson said, “I thought to turn it in, instead of keeping it and stuff because I know that it should be turned in to the girl that have the wallet.”
