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

James Gilpin delivered two pizzas costing $12.50 to the IWU chapel Wednesday and was greeted by about 3,000 students and residential education CEO Keith Newman.

Newman brought Gilpin onstage and gave him a $1,268 tip collected by the students, along with $70 in gift cards and thousands of inspirational notes written by the students.

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

Gilpin tells WRTV (https://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.
