Stacey & Mike's Happy News: Man Pays College Tuition For 33 Students!

Thanks to Kim in Vancouver

Dale Schroeder was a simple, humble man from Iowa, who ended up changing the lives of 33 people forever. He worked as a carpenter at the same company for 67 years. He grew up poor and had no wife or children of his own.

When he died in 2005, no one could have guessed how rich Dale really was as he had saved up a fortune over the years. He had no living descendants, so before he died, he went to his lawyer with a plan for his money.

He never got the opportunity to go to college. So, he decided to help kids go to college. Not only did Dale have enough money to send a few kids to college, he had enough saved to send dozens.

Dale's friends were shocked by his secret fortune. So were the strangers who received pieces of it.

Dale left specific instructions for his money: send small town Iowa kids to college and ended up paying for 33 strangers' college tuition. The group, who has dubbed themselves "Dale's kids," got together earlier this month to honor the man who changed their lives. They're now doctors, teachers, therapists and friends.
