Stranger Helps Teen After Principal Won't Allow Him At Graduation
Cailyn Finkel 6/20/2017
High school graduation is supposed to be one of the best day of a young student's life. Unfortunately for Leroy Solis Jr. of San Antonio, Texas, that idea was shattered.
Unbeknownst to Leroy, there was a strict graduation dress code - and when he showed up to the ceremony in jeans, his principal promptly kicked him out. Thankfully, Leroy's guardian angel was looking over his shoulder....

As Leroy walked backed to his car with his head hung, someone caught his attention. There was a young bystander right before his eyes that looked to be the same exact size as him and was wearing dress slacks.
Even though it sounded odd, Leroy approached the unknown young man and asked if he could possibly trade pants. Leroy's sister, Rosemary De Los Santos, shared what happened next on her Facebook page:
"To the guy who loan my brother his slacks yesterday to graduate: THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
I got emotional today when my brother told me he showed up to his graduation in jeans. The school Principal told him he wasn't crossing the stage and sent him home."

"He had 3 minutes to line up.
My brother walked back to his car and came across a young man his height and size. My brother proceeded to explain that he needed slacks to walk the stage and without any hesitation this kind young man said yes.
The young man and his dad said, 'get in our truck and switch out pants.' Then they told him, 'go cross the stage.' THANK YOU! THANK YOU!"
Thankfully the young man and his father were willing to do anything for Leroy to walk on his graduation night - even if that meant switching pants with a total stranger!
