Steven Hutchison, who teaches music to students in grades K-12 at Midland Adventist Academy in Shawnee, Kansas, has been honored with a $2,500 educational grant from Farmers Insurance® as a part of the Thank America’s Teachers® program.
Hutchison’s grant will be used to purchase two composite instrument storage lockers to properly and safely house student instruments within the school’s growing music program.
Local Farmers Insurance® agent Laurie Mendon stated that “seeing the students, community and my Farmers colleagues pull together to support and vote for Steven made the time and effort all worthwhile. My team is so grateful to represent a company that gives back to the amazing teachers of the Kansas City area who devote their lives to educating and molding the future of our city. Steven exemplifies the teacher that we all want our children and grandchildren to learn from, and his amazing inspiration and ethics confidently mold them into the best version of themselves!”
Hutchison is among the first group of 60 teachers to receive a $2,500 educational grant through the Farmers Insurance Thank America’s Teachers national program in 2018.
