Damian Reyes received a Computer Lab Achievement Award from the now-defunct Oak View Elementary School Sept. 22, 1993. The award consisted of a Wendy's gift certificate that entitled Reyes to one free hamburger and one junior frosty.
The 30-year-old Reyes redeemed the award Friday after discovering the gift certificate while preparing for a move.
“It's from 1993,” said one Wendy's employee when presented with the certificate. After Reyes pointed out it had no expiration date, he was given his hamburger and frosty.
