He may be down two games in the NBA Finals, but LeBron James will have reason to smile upon returning to his house in Ohio.

That’s because after his L.A. home was vandalized with racist graffiti, Akron public school English and language arts teacher Jennifer Pennington took things into her own hands to ease the pain the superstar was feeling following the hateful crime.

Pennington created large cards with terms like “Hero,” “Leader,” and “Humanitarian” on them and placed them just outside of James’ driveway.

When Pennington arrived at James’ home, she spoke to the security guard working the property and informed him of her intention.

“I said, ‘Hey, we’d like to put some signs up, but only if it’s OK with the family,'” Pennington recalled. “He said, ‘We’re not going to do any of that [here in the driveway], but you can put them across the street.’ So I said, ‘OK, sure.’ And then he was really cute. He said, ‘Well, actually, I probably should look and see what these signs say before I give the OK.’

“So he looked at them and said, ‘Nobody should have a problem with those.'” (ESPN)

When it comes to acts of kindness, Pennington gets an A+.
