MANILA – A student in Tagum City, Davao del Norte is being praised for his honesty after he returned a lost wallet containing cash and check worth P150,000.

Jeffrey Balbero, a fourth year student of Tagum City National High School, returned the wallet to the school's principal last Tuesday.

Balbero, an orphan and a working student, said he did not let his poor condition in life drive him to keep the money for himself.

The wallet, which was left at the school gymnasium, was returned to its owner, a student's parent.

Balbero is set to be given recognition by his school on Monday. – report from Elric Ayop, ABS-CBN News Davao
