Cam Newton gives Letterman appearance money to Auburn school

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Cam Newton's $200 appearance fee from the David Letterman Show is going to the school where he's been volunteering.

Lynda Tremaine, principal of Wrights Mill Road Elementary School, says the show contacted her school Tuesday to let them know of Newton's donation.

Under NCAA rules, Newton isn't allowed to keep the fee from his appearance on the show Monday, where he read the top 10 list of things that he could say now that he was a Heisman Trophy winner. He could donate it to a charity of his choice.

Newton started volunteering at the elementary school over the summer, beginning with one-on-one work with four students from the fourth and fifth grades, but branching out as the school year went on.
