WATCH: Georgia Tech Students Surprise Security Officer with Huge Holiday Gift

Students from the Scheller College of Business show their appreciation and holiday spirit.

Security officers often are the unsung heroes on college campuses, but about 150 students at Georgia Tech’s Scheller College of Business sought to change that.

They wanted to thank their security officer who always goes the extra mile to make their day a little bit better. The students hoped to pull together $100 as a token of their appreciation. Instead they showed the true spirit of the holiday season by raising a whole lot more.
