One good turn deserves another.

A lucky Minnesota mom made an amazing half-court shot earlier this month — on a bounce — winning half-off next year’s middle school tuition for her daughter.

A feat Angela Ramey accomplished after helping raise the most money during the Bethany Academy’s food drive, which helps feed the hungry in Bloomington and the surrounding communities, the school said on Facebook.

Ramey’s Shocked ShotThe unbelievable half-court alley-oop shot and Angela’s shocked reaction when she realizes the ball went in the basket! Thanks Alex Matheson (videographer and BA dad) for capturing Angela Ramey and Grace last Friday, deciding who’s going to take the shot to try to score half-off tuition next year. Angela throws the basketball granny style with her eyes closed, then screams in disbelief when the cheering students and staff convince her she scored. She’s jumping amid 41,040 meals packed by 235 students during Friday’s “Bethany Loves Bloomington” meal packing event Friday, a service project undertaken to help feed the hungry in Bloomington and the surrounding communities.The Ramey’s won the chance for the half-court/half-tuition prize by being the family who raised the most money during the school’s fundraiser.
