From The Topeka Capital-Journal website:

Dean Fairweather sees many students come and go through the automotive classes he teaches at Topeka High School, and a few stand out as being mechanic material.

“We have two juniors here right now who are going to be great mechanics,” Fairweather said. “They’re very serious about it.”

On Wednesday morning, another Topeka High student — senior Brianna Henderson — was the center of attention, as Fairweather surprised her with the keys to a dark green 2000 Mazda 626 that had been given to him by his father-in-law, Lee Wright.

Fairweather said Henderson has been in his classes since her freshman year. In her sophomore year, she gave birth to her son, Zayl, who will turn 2 years old in January.

He held her spot in the automotive mechanics class while she was away for nine weeks after giving birth, and when she returned, she was able to pick up where she left off.
