Action star Dwayne Johnson surprised his fan with a special package. He gave the lucky fan a personalized message and his full-length picture.
In a tweet, Noah Ashbrook shared that Johnson reached out to them to surprise his colleague, Carol Propst. She is about to retire as a teacher in their school.
Propst was seen happily standing beside Johnson's life-sized picture stand. Under Ashbrook's post, Twitter users commented that the gift Johnson sent was the "coolest thing" that happened recently.
A 70- DAY PETITION
Since this is the last year for Propst as a teacher, Ashbrook went on a 70-day petition to the action star. Propst and Ashbrook are both colleagues in Bristol, Virginia High School, as reported by Daily Mail.
He bombarded the actor with tweets and even asked a personalized message for Propst just in time for teachers' appreciation week. The retiring teacher is a big fan of the former wrestler-turned-actor.
Sending non-stop tweets, Ashbrook's plan paid off when Johnson agreed to his request. The best gift came for Prospt.
A SWEET MESSAGE
Johnson responded eventually and sent Propst a gift package, as reported by PEOPLE. Along with the gift, Johnson sent her a sweet, personalized message to Propst, who has been teaching English for 39 years.
"On behalf of all parents, Carole I say thank you. Thank you and thank all of your fellow teachers for your wisdom, for your love, for your care, for your discipline — which I needed a lot if you were my teacher," Johnson said.
He also sent Propst a bottle of Teremana Tequila in addition to her retirement gift. Johnson told Propst that they would share a shot together one day.
Propst couldn't help but gush over her celebrity crush. It made her day and other teachers' as well, as reported by Daily Mail.
She feels grateful for the actor's gift as he made her feel really special. Propst thanked the teaching community and the students for their support in providing an "ultimate gift."
"His personal shout-out not only to me but to all teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week was better than anything I could have imagined," Propst said.
Despite his strong physique, Johnson has a soft spot for his daughters. Earlier, one of her daughters demanded him to sing a song from the movie, "Moana."
