David Reynolds, a junior studying computer information technology, surprises many students with an unexpected silent service. This winter semester, students have experienced his willingness to share his time, efforts and his truck.
Reynolds is known for assisting his friends by pulling them out of the snow.
“Many people drive by someone that is stuck and ignore them,” Reynolds said. “Really? Just help them.”
Grayson Stotts, a freshman studying accounting, said Reynolds was able to get him out of thick snow.
“I thought of David instantly after being stuck,” Stotts said.
Reynolds said he gets six or seven text messages a day asking him to help. He said if he is busy, he knows there are others who will help instead.
“David is a blessed man,” said Jordan Nestman, a freshman studying exercise physiology. “I was going on a group date and, right before, he told me to call him if we got stuck.”
Nestman said they indeed got stuck, but Reynolds was able to come and help them.
Reynolds said he recalls a time when he was on his way to get Nestman and his friends out of the snow. He noticed that the roads were looking “scary” and forgot to pray. He said he would take his hands off the wheel and try to sign — he is deaf — his prayer and quickly put them back on the steering wheel before swerving off of the road.
“Prayer helps me have patience with the situation,” Reynolds said. “God will always listen to prayers.”
