Local Connection: Good Deeds

Local Connection: Good Deeds

By: Rick Blangiardi

Here's the feel-good story of the year.

A Maryknoll high school student helped a 96-year old woman across the street just as the light was beginning to change.

Big deal? A very big deal indeed.

Seventeen-year-old Jacob Hee said he was just trying to be a nice guy and maybe do a good deed.

He never thought anyone would notice and he wasn't looking for the limelight.

"it shouldn't be a big deal," hee said. "i mean this is what you would expect anyone to do."

But he got some attention.

After someone snapped a photo, we put the story on the Hawaii News Now Facebook page.

Nearly half a million people have looked at it and it has been shared nearly 4,000 times.

You don't see good deeds highlighted every day.

Great job Jacob Hee.

You make us proud.
