Donovan Mitchell surprised his fourth-grade teacher and her daughter with a $25,000 scholarship check after the Jazz's game against the Hawks on Thursday night. 

Deborah Peart was Mitchell's fourth-grade teacher at Greenwich Country Day School. Peart and her daughter, Naja Brooks, were given courtside seats for the game.

After the Jazz's 117-114 loss, Mitchell surprised Brooks, a student at the Savannah College of Arts and Design, with a scholarship check through his SPIDACARES Foundation.

The video was posted by the Jazz digital media team. 

Mitchell has been a longtime supporter of education. His mother is a preschool teacher and he has expressed a strong desire to finish his degree at the University of Louisville.
