Culver Community High School teacher finalist in 'Colts Classroom Quarterback Competition'

CULVER, Ind. - Culver Community Schools announced English teacher Michelle Fobert has been named a top 10 finalist in the Colts Classroom Quarterback Competition, with a chance to win money for the school.

Fobert has been a teacher for 10 years and was nominated for this title by a current co-teacher at Culver Community High School.

Fobert's nomination included her work with students in and out of the classroom and her work with Odin the Therapy Dog.

She oversees the therapy dog program and brings Odin with her weekly as a resource for students when they're feeling overwhelmed or need a break.

Fobert also organizes the HNAC writing competition with fellow teachers.

She oversees the Culver Alliance for Voluntary Service Club (CAVSC) which involves high school students focused on giving back to the community along with other community initiatives.

Fobert also volunteers with Odin at Millers Merry Manor and the Culver Union Township Public Library.

Finalists for the Classroom Quarterback program are chosen by a panelist of educational professionals, the Indianapolis Colts, and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

Fobert received a $100 Amazon gift card for school supplies, two tickets to the Colts home opener game and Colts merchandise.

If Fobert is chosen as the Classroom Quarterback of 2024, she will also receive a $2,500 donation for Culver Community High School.

Finalists were chosen on the amount of involvement in school and/or community, degree of positive impact on the school and/or community, and demonstrated commitment to education, health and wellness initiatives, and other programming.
