“They told me you made the Dean’s List, good job girl," said Rachel Curry.

MOUNT AIRY, N.C. — A Chick-fil-A worker out of Mount Airy shared a tweet about two grandparents who are extremely proud of their granddaughter who made the Dean’s List at N.C. State University, Wednesday.

Minutes later NC State Freshman Maggie Beal replied to Curry’s tweet saying the two people she referenced in her tweets, were her grandparents.

Beal replied to the tweet with gratitude saying it “just made her week.”
