On the day they were going to give him the gift, they blindfolded him and took him to the parking lot in the school.
When they got to the parking lot, they handed him a gift box and told him to feel inside for the content and guess what they gave him.
You don't have to walk again
After his blindfold was taken off, they pointed towards the truck they bought. The surprised man was helped into the passenger seat.
Joe cried when the students told him he does not have to trek again in his life. He hugged all of them one by one.
Watch the moment below:
He slept during the day
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young student, Walter, had to trek 20 miles on his first day to resume at his new workplace. His car broke down the night before so he resorted to going on foot.
Before morning, the young man tried to see if his friends could take him but nothing came up as it was such short notice.
The young man never allowed that to discourage him. Instead of staying back, he decided to walk all the way.
He left home at midnight
After checking maps and seeing that he would need seven hours to get to Pelham, Walter decided to leave at midnight. He slept in the afternoon and woke at 12 am to begin his journey.
“I wanted to be there before 8. I wanted to beat the crew members there to let the company know how dedicated I am.”
