Jeremy Hernandez is the man. He was trapped on a tilting school bus in the recent Minnesota bridge collapse with a bunch of kids and rose to the challenge of the chaos by kicking out the back door and leading them all to safety.
The media loves a good hero story and Jeremy has been getting buffeted by accolades, interview requests, and gifts. He’s been offered free tuition at a car repair tech school (he had had to drop out of a program because he couldn’t afford the $15k/year costs).
The best part of this whole thing (you know, besides all the kids he saved) is that when the White House called him about a photo op with our stupid president, he had one simple word for them.
Much respect to Jeremy Hernandez.
