Professor's Act of Kindness Goes Viral

December 14, 2015

A photo of Daniel Krebs, a history professor at the University of Louisville, has gone viral, making him a hero to many single parents. As ABC News reported, Monica Willard, a junior at Louisville who is also balancing parenting and military duties, couldn't find child care when a babysitter canceled at the last minute, and Willard was due to be taking a test. She tried to get her 4-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter to sit on a couch outside the classroom. When that didn't work, Krebs intervened, telling Willard to focus on the test while he entertained the children with computer games. A fellow student recorded the moment and the photo is now spreading online.
