LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — A Las Vegas city councilman has been reunited with a piece of his teenage years.
Cedric Crear found his long-lost varsity jacket after it went missing years ago. He was a four-time state champion in tennis at Bishop Gorman High School.
He learned the jacket somehow made its way to California, and a vintage clothing store owner received it in a shipment.
The owner noticed the letters and name and looked up Crear, sending him a photo of the jacket to return it.
"It really brought me faith in humanity in people and in our society," the councilman said. "It shows you there’s a lot of good people out there. He did what he said he was going to do. So that reiterated that fact as well. So it’s pretty cool such a warm feeling."
Crear said the gesture brought him back to his high school days.
