Ms. Cindy Ferek, a physical education teacher at Turner Ashby High School in Bridgewater, has been selected as a finalist in the competition to receive a $100,000 grant from Farmers Insurance Dream Big Challenge program. Her proposal, a mile-long paved trail around the school, will help prepare students for the real-time challenges of driving through exercises targeting decision making. In addition, it will help make Bridgewater’s beautiful surroundings more accessible to special needs students at Turner Ashby. In addition, the trail would be open to the public, making it a valuable contribution to the community as a whole.

Ms. Ferek is the only finalist selected from the Commonwealth and anyone with a valid email address can vote at www.thankamillionteachers.com. Polls won’t close until November 30, so please share this and let’s help Ms. Ferek make this excellent project a reality!
