When Roxianna McCutchan wrote about how one man helped with her disability, she never imagined others would feel as moved as she felt that day.
McCutchan, of Victoria, won the Regal Jewelers essay contest asking for readers' best back-to-school memories.
Her story highlights how the maintenance man at Inez Elementary School helped create a new chair for her because of her disability.
"Anytime someone stops and does something for someone else, it's good," she said about her experience.
McCutchan lives with multi-minicore myopathy, a skeletal muscles illness.
Even writing the story for the first time was heartwarming.
"Thirty-five years later, it can still bring tears to my eyes," she said.
