Three teachers at the Westville Correctional Facility were recognized for their selfless act in assisting a stranded motorist.
Adam Brown, Bill Frazier and David McLiver are all employed by Grace College as instructors in the high school equivalency program at WCC. Since they all live near Plymouth they usually car pool to work. It not only saves them money, but they feel there is safety in numbers when they leave for work together long before the sun rises.
On one particularly snowy morning, they were following a woman driving down U.S. 30 just ahead of them. Suddenly, the vehicle swerved and slid off the road to the right, coming to rest in a ditch about 10 feet deep.
They pulled to the side with their emergency flashers blinking and checked on the driver who was not hurt. They helped her out of her vehicle, and then formed a human chain to help her get back up the bank.
They gave her a ride to the INDOT headquarters a few miles down the road, making sure she was safe and getting the assistance she needed. Once they knew she was fine, they got back in their vehicle and continued on to their jobs at WCC.
Brown, Frazier and McLiver were named the Ambassadors of the Quarter. This award is given to those who go out of their way to provide something extra to the community beyond their normal state job duties.
