After her son was humiliated at school over a $5 past due balance, a Michigan mom decided to make sure the same thing wouldn't happen to any other students. Dominic Gant, a junior at Dowagiac Union High School, said it was "really embarrassing" when his lunch was thrown in the trash in front of his classmates.

Amanda Keown said she was "appalled" that her son was denied lunch over a few dollars, so she paid about $200 to cover her son's past due balance and 19 other students' balances at the school.

The school later said Gant should not have been sent home hungry.
