AXTELL, TX — One Axtell teenager made his mission to make every girl at his school smile today.

Almost every one can recall anxiously waiting around on Valentine's Day at school, hoping you won't be the only one not receiving a Valentine. Well, one teen is eliminating that worry.

Amy Kathryn Gordon said that her son, sophomore Jayme Wooley, made her proud when he told her he wanted to buy every girl at his school a flower so they feel special.

And no, he didn't mean just every girl in high school. Wooley bought 170 flowers for every girl in 6th to 12th grade.

He will hand them out on Valentine's Day as students are headed to school.

And Amy wasn't the only one proud of his actions. They whole community applauded his efforts online.

"He has a heart of gold like his momma ❤️❤️," Desirae Stranacher said.

"This totally makes my mommy heart happy. What an incredible young man," Brooke Webster-Newton said.

"You give me hope! I tell my daughter when she gets old enough for a boyfriend, there are some really good guys out there! Your guy is definitely a testament to that! Great parents!" Tanya Gonzalez-Sanchez said.
