SANTA CLARA (BCN)
A Pomeroy Elementary School teacher has been given a $10,000 award by the College Football Playoff Foundation’s Extra Yard for Teachers initiative.
Teacher Stacy Butler and her third-grade class were notified of the award during a ceremony at the elementary school on Thursday.
Representatives from the Pac-12 and the Santa Clara Unified School District presented the award.
Pac-12 university mascots also visited the elementary school to help present the award.
Butler and her students were also given an invitation to be recognized Friday at the Pac-12 title football game between the University of Utah Utes and the University of Washington Huskies.
The mission of the Extra Yard for Teachers Program is to elevate the teaching profession by inspiring and empowering quality teachers.
During the 2018 football season, each of the Pac-12 universities donated $10,000 to deserving local teachers across the region.
