On behalf of the College Football Playoff Foundation, and the SDCCU Holiday Bowl, Ivy was awarded with $1,000.

SAN DIEGO, Calif., (September 27, 2021) -- San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, is proudly honoring Ivy Medrano of Sweetwater Union High School District as the 2021 Extra Yard for Teachers Big Day recipient. Mrs. Medrano teaches moderate to severe special education at East Hills Academy. Her job is to integrate special education students into the community. Extra Yard for Teachers Week took place September 10-18. This initiative in partnership with the SDCCU Holiday Bowl, was set forth by the College Football Playoff Foundation to elevate the teaching profession by inspiring and empowering teachers.
The College Football Playoff Foundation is the community engagement arm of the College Football Playoff and works in partnership with institutions of higher education, sports organizations, corporations and non-profits to support educators and improve student outcomes. The College Football Playoff Foundation in partnership with Bowl Season and the SDCCU Holiday Bowl has awarded $1,000 to acknowledge a local teacher who is going above and beyond in the classroom – and who is deserving of the honor.
“SDCCU is proud to honor Ivy as a deserving teacher who is passionate about her students in and out of the classroom,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Campbell. “We especially want to acknowledge Ivy’s work in partnering with Walgreens to hire her students, in addition to working with parents to find solutions to the students’ aging out process and their life after high school. Ivy is truly exceptional and these students and our communities are better because of her.”
