Teacher Makes Shocking Discovery While Looking At A 30-Year-Old Picture

Moving to Minnesota after living in Perhman for 25 years was a tough decision for Lorly Schik. She had spent those year teaching children in her community. She had so much affection for her students that she remembered every single one of their names.

Since she had retired and her husband passed away, Schik who was nearing 90 decided it was time to make a change, according to USA Today.

"The time had come," she said.

She decided to move closer to her family in the Twin Cities, and left Perham for a independent senior living complex in St. Paul. Her new home was just a few blocks away from her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

But when she turned on the TV in her new home, she saw a familiar face from Perham.

"When I first saw him, I could hardly believe it," Schik told USA Today. "I can still picture him as a small dark-haired child in his K-desk!"

Those dark hairs, had now turned grey, but the face she was was still that of Cory Hepola, one of her students from 30 years ago. Now, Hepola was all grown up and on TV on KARE 11 Sunrise. She decided to pen him a letter telling him how proud she was of him.

Hepola soon replied back asking if she would like to meet.

"I just had to tell Mrs. Schik how much her note meant to me,” he wrote. “And, really, how much she meant to me.”
