Poor UST Graduate Who Needed Php500 for Transcript Earns Praise for Returning Bag He Found with Php34k Inside

His parents were both shoemakers but poor as they are, Vince Luiz Cruz was able to complete a degree in chemical engineering from the University of Santo Tomas (UST) on a scholarship. And he’s recently proven his worth when he found a bag of money and returned it intact, even if he needed Php500 ($10) himself.

Cruz was at the school to process his transcript of records to comply with the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) requirement for board exams. He was still wondering where he would get the Php500 he needed to pay for the transcript when he chanced upon a bag left by an absentminded student.

Opening the bag, he found it filled with numerous Php1,000 bills which amounted to Php34,000 ($675)! This bag certainly had the money he needed plus a whole lot more he could have used to buy things he needed! But Cruz is an honest guy. He might be poor and certainly in need of that money but he knows it’s not his.

He could have been tempted to take the cash for himself but the honest graduated turned it over to the security guard.

I don’t want to fail my parents. I came from a poor family. My parents were both shoemakers and I studied in UST as scholar,” Cruz told ABS-CBN News.

I might not be the most intelligent student UST could have but I always look forward to becoming a better person every day for my family, friends and especially in front of God. In our everyday life if you cannot make God happy, don’t do it.

The money was later claimed by a student who was able to prove that the items were his.

While it is unknown whether the student gave Cruz some reward for his good deed, the school let him get his documents for free! We’re also quite sure that good karma will follow his way because of his honest deeds.

Good luck on the board exams and we pray for your success in life, Vince Luiz Cruz!
