Teacher of the Year Gets Brand New Car Monday

By  | 

A lucky Kansas woman got to drive home in a new set of wheels Monday. Cindy Counchman received a 2009 Chrysler Sebring at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Topeka.

She won the car for being chosen as 2009 Kansas Teacher of the Year Award. Counchman is a Math teacher at Buhler High School.

The Enterprise Foundation provides a six month lease for the state's top educator. She also received $1,500 in ethanol gas from the Kansas Corn Commission.
