Ferndale Teacher Drives Away in New GMC Terrain
Derek Adams, one of the Ferndale Schools 2012 District Teachers of the Year, won a free one-year lease from Suburban Buick GMC of Ferndale.
Adams, who drove away with his wife Kari in a 2012 GMC Terrain, was chosen during the district's annual staff recognition ceremony after the Suburban Collection announced it would draw a name among the three District Teachers of the Year and award that teacher with a free car lease.
"It's an amazing thing that they are honoring the district and district teachers," he said after the ceremony last week. "I feel very honored."
"We are pleased to have Ferndale join seven other school districts where the Suburban Collection recognizes an outstanding and award-winning teacher with the free lease of a vehicle for a year," said Rick Perry, general sales manager of Suburban Buick GMC of Ferndale, which became a Suburban Collection dealership in January. "Our program provides The Suburban Collection with a means of providing a special thank you for the ongoing commitment to excellence by teachers in the communities where we do business."
