Cindy Won!


Congratulations to Cindy Ferek and Turner Ashby High School! On Monday December 8th, 2014 she was awarded the Farmer’s Insurance Thank A Million Teachers grant totaling $100,000! None of this would have been possible without Cindy’s passion for biking, her students, and a healthy active lifestyle. Furthermore, Cindy’s dream of winning this grant would not have happened without all of you, and your support in voting for her over the past two months. Focused Fitness Trainer Alex O’Brien had this to say about Cindy and the award:

Monday was emotional for Chuck Mansley and myself. This has been a long time coming for Cindy. She started out writing grants 17 years ago to acquire a fleet of bikes. She has a fleet now and this money will be used to build a fitness trail surrounding Turner Ashby High School. I think the reason it was so emotional for me is because I’ve talked with Cindy quite a bit along this #thankateacher journey. Each day I would log on and vote because I knew that my vote mattered. Bottom line, this money is going to improve health and fitness in kids…that is a game changer for me, and I can’t be happier for my friend. It just goes to show ya that you have to shoot for the stars. That way, even if you fail, you’re on top of the world.

Cindy’s news story can be found by Clicking Here, or check out the cindy ferek press release. In case you missed it, check out the Chuck Mansley interview with Cindy before the voting had even begun, over two months ago.

Congrats Cindy!
