Muncie, Ind. – Ball State University and the College Football Playoff Foundation (CFPF) have honored Northside Middle School Teacher Isaac Denniston with its Extra Yard for Teachers Award.

Denniston, a Choir teacher who also leads the school’s popular Titan TV program, will receive a $1,000 Donors Choose gift card for school supplies and other items. He will also be recognized on the field during Ball State’s football game on October 1.

“Isaac is so deserving of this outstanding recognition,” Muncie Community Schools Director of Public Education and CEO Lee Ann Kwiatkowski said. “He always goes above and beyond for our students in the school’s music and media programs. He is regularly giving to students and to the community.”

The CFPF works with institutions of higher education and other organizations to support educators and improve student outcomes by elevating the teaching profession and empowering teachers.

“We know every day is game day for teachers, and Extra Yard for Teachers represents a coming together of college football to show its appreciation for teachers,” CFPF Executive Director Britton Banowsky said.”
