Keller Sutherland, a First Grade Teacher at Ellen Woodside Elementary in was Driving Home when she noticed a Child riding his Bike Down Highway 25 in Greenville.
Her intuition told her something was wrong, so she turned around and planned to ask him where he was going.
When Keller stepped out of her Car to approach the Boy she immediately recognized him.
“Oh my gosh that’s Cameron,” she recalled. “That’s my student, I had him last year.”
Cameron, 7, told Keller about his predicament and his last resort was to ride his Bike for 5 Miles on Highway in Hope of reaching his Grandmother’s House.
Meanwhile, Keller told WSPA that she had been having a Lousy Day. Upon questioning her career decisions, she had left school Earlier than Usual and started driving home when she saw a Boy riding his Bike through Traffic.
At that time, Keller did her Best to keep Cameron calm. Once paramedics were called to the scene, Cameron gave them directions to his House so they could help his Father.
Emergency responders arrived at Cameron’s Home and found his Father barely conscious on the floor. They delivered the Necessary Injections to Cameron’s Dad, his Blood Sugar Levels quickly returned to Normal. Keller said the whole experience renewed her Faith in her Profession.

Keller said as a Teacher, her Job goes far beyond the classroom. “There’s no doubt that God placed me where he did when he needed me,” she told WSPA.
“I truly care for these kids,” said Keller, “and on a day when I felt like I wasn’t making an impact, and then God just intervened and placed me where I needed to be in that moment for Cameron.”
