Balbero is in fact, an orphan and a working student at the same time. He works for the Hingpit family as a houseboy. His economic status did not lure him to take the cash and checks amounting to about P150,000 he found inside his school's gymnasium.

Apparently, the huge amount of money was left by a student's parent.

The remarkably honest student is due for a special recognition by his school on Monday, Principal of Tagum City National High School Judith Onlos said.
