Englewood teacher receives $2,500 grant

Posted

An Englewood High School teacher was presented April 27 with a $2,500 grant from Farmers Insurance representatives as part of the insurer group's Thank America's Teachers program.

Cyndi Figaro's grant will pay for a wheelchair swing for her students with limited physical capabilities to experience simple luxuries such as swinging. She is among the first group of 60 teachers to receive a grant from the national program.

Launched at the 2015 Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego, California, the Thank America's Teachers program enables Americans to say thank you to teachers who made an impact on their lives.

Through Thank America's Teachers, Farmers Insurance will present more than $1 million to educators in 2018 and the public will help determine who receives the grants at ThankAmericasTeachers.com.

Farmers will award 200 grants valued at $2,500 during the year. In addition, five Dream Big Teacher Challenge grants of $100,000 each will be awarded to help support innovative educational programs in communities across the country.
