A 24-year-old student at a community college in Texas paid off his grandparents' mortgage in gratitude for having been taken in by them at a young age, Today.com reported.
Stefun Darts handed his grandparents a $15,000 check during a March 20 surprise party.
Darts said he saved money by often staying home to fulfill the goal he's had since second grade of helping his grandparents.
"I had to sacrifice a lot. Friendships, relationships, going around and partying," he told Today.com.
The $15,000 will also cover a trip to the Bahamas, he said.
Darts said he works as a material handler for Exxon and as a loan officer while also studying at San Jacinto College outside Houston. He also started a nonprofit that provides supplies to poor children and teens.
