LINCOLN, Neb. — A Nebraska officer will be able to fulfill her dream of finishing her college education after appearing on The Ellen Degeneres Show.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Officer Chassidy Jackson-Goodwin couldn’t contain her excitement after she received a $75,000 check from the TV host. The officer’s daughter, Jaida Jackson, initially wrote to the show to share her mother’s story.

Jackson-Goodwin raised Jaida as a single parent and took out $17,000 in loans so her daughter could attend college. The officer never got to complete her own bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.

This might be the most moving game of beer pong ever played. I love you, @MelissaMcCarthy.

After reading the letter, a staffer offered the officer and her daughter free tickets to the show.

At the show, Degeneres called the officer and her daughter on stage to participate in a game with actress Melissa McCarthy. Afterward, Degeneres surprised the officer with the check.

Jackson-Goodwin said she couldn’t believe what happened.

“It has just been, like, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy,” Jackson-Goodwin said.
