Teacher Finds $11K, Turns It In


by WCCB Charlotte

 CLOVER, SC -- A fourth grade teacher taught her son a life lesson when she found $11,000 on the side of the road and turned it in.  The York County woman says she had no choice but to do the right thing.

Sherry Whitesides and her son were on their way to a baseball game when several hundred-dollar bills hit their windshield.  They found more cash when they pulled over.

"I'm rich in the Lord," said Whitesides, "and I just know that he has blessed me far more than that little $11,000 could ever bless me.  And I never thought about keeping the money.  My concern was for whoever lost it."

Whitesides also found a Wells Fargo receipt, which helped police track down the owner of the money.
