Indiana college gives pizza deliverer $1,200 tip

The Associated Press

MARION, Ind. (AP) A pizza delivery driver has a lot to show for a run to Indiana Wesleyan University.

When James Gilpin brought two pizzas costing $12.50 to the university's chapel Wednesday, he was given a $1,268 tip collected by students.

Residential education CEO Keith Newman brought Gilpin onstage and gave him the money, along with $70 in gift cards and thousands of inspirational notes written by the students at the school in Marion.

Newman says the big tip for the pizzas illustrates his message that students should do for one person what they wish they could do for everyone.

Gilpin tells WRTV (http://bit.ly/1s0wRSX ) he'll use the money to help with Christmas gifts for his two children. He says he's already been inspired by the students' notes.
