High school seniors 'Prank it Forward,' give waiter $510 tip

SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. - You might remember a video from last year that showed a food fight as part of a school prank.

It took place at Combs High School in San Tan Valley. The prank ended with seniors involved in the prank being banned from graduation ceremonies.

It's a much different story with seniors from the class of 2014 who have decided to "prank it forward".

Seniors at Combs High School in the San Tan Valley are preparing to graduate Thursday, and they have pulled a senior prank that will not soon be forgotten.

"Everybody is really proud of us, and it feels great," said Sarah Kendall.

This group of seniors organized a plan called "prank it forward" to raise money for a server at a nearby Olive Garden who needed help with medical bills.

"And to be able to do that was really awesome and really exciting to be able to do it together," said Hailey Wilt.

As they paid for lunch they left him a cash tip of $510; it was money raised from students over the past week and a half, and it was caught on camera.

"It was amazing to see the look on his face when he was so filled with joy, and he wanted to cry, but didn't want to cry because he's a guy," said Hailey Wilt.

"He tried to give us the money back, he's like "here what are you doing?"," said Eva Ribbons.

"And as he opened it all the money was right there, and he was like "Um here you you go" and we were like, "No, Combs High School is presenting this prank it forward to you because you deserve it"," said Angelica Whinnery.

People in the restaurant applauded the random act of kindness. Students and teachers hope "prank it forward" becomes a tradition.

"More people get a benefit out of this than we would out of pranking our school," said Karla Alfaro.
