Georgia professor’s act of kindness goes viral


ATLANTA (WSPA/CNN) — A professor stepped in when a Georgia college student wasn’t able to find a babysitter.

WSB-TV reports Dr. Nathan Alexander, a math professor at Morehouse College, saw the nervous father who was apprehensive about attending class with his baby daughter.

Berndt Petersen tells WSB-TV that Dr. Alexander welcomed him into class and even offered to hold Petersen’s daughter so he could take notes. 

A classmate took photos of the professor in a tweet that’s gone viral with 78,000 retweets since it was posted Friday.
