Social studies teachers Seth Brady and Randy Smith were directed to Central’s learning commons this morning to discover a small crowd of teachers, students, administrators, elected officials and news media, all gathered to celebrate with members of Farmers Insurance, who presented Brady with a check for $100,000.

The award was for Brady’s proposal submitted to the insurance company’s Thank America’s Teachers Dream Big Teacher Challenge. His proposal to help fund Illinois’ recently adopted Global Scholars program was selected as one of 15 national finalists prior to today’s announcement that Brady was one of six finalists selected for the grant.
