What 6th grader brings $20K to school? Vibe, in a March 13 report, ran that headline and said a Taylor Sixth Grade Academy student arrived to school with a backpack full of money. Additionally, the 12-year-old girl then handed out hundreds of dollars to classmates before the cash was seized.
It's not often that a 6th grader brings $20,000 to school. However, when it happens, teachers and staff take notice.
After a teacher observed the girl handing out numerous hundred-dollar bills, they notified the principal's office, which then called police.
Authorities met with the generous student and asked her how she came across the money. The girl simply said she got the money from a neighbor who lives across the street from her Michigan home. Apparently, she and the other girl, about her same age, were playing with the money, like it was $20,000 in "Monopoly" cash.
Sources say the girl was giving out money at the school like she was "giving out candy."
However, at this time police have not released further details about the source of the money, but when a 6th grade student brings $20K to school in a backpack, it won't be long until more is learned.
