(KUTV/CNN) — For about 800 girls in northern Utah, this Valentine’s Day is one they probably won’t soon forget, and it’s all thanks to a very generous classmate.
“I want to make as many people happy as possible,” said Hayden Godfrey.
He’s the high school senior whose good deed quickly became the talk of the town because his bought flowers for his female classmates, one for every girl at Sky View High School.
“I don’t think a girl should be left out during Valentine’s Day,” he said.
Hayden ordered the flowers himself, recruited some friends, and just before school ended Thursday for the long holiday weekend, passed them out.
Impressive, right? Well, that’s especially when you consider it cost this student nearly $500 to pull it off.
He bought the flowers at a market where he works as a bagger. He’s been saving all of his money to buy all those flowers and you can bet he wouldn’t be able to do that with just one paycheck.
“To spend your money like that, it takes someone with real heart,” said Hayden’s boss Steve Hoggan.
Now, you might think Hayden is the luckiest guy in school right now — 800 girls with flowers, 800 potential dates for this big man on campus — except he’s already taken.
But his girlfriend loves his big-hearted gesture. “To watch every single one of those girls walk out of school with a big smile on their face makes me very happy and very proud of him,” she said.
