Manhattan teacher wins new car for Teacher of the Year

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – A Manhattan teacher is driving around in a new set of wheels.

Tuesday night at Capital City Nissan, Cindi Nivert had the lucky keys to start a 2014 Nissan Versa. That also makes her the 2013-2014 Teacher of the Year.

Nivert was May’s teacher of the month.

Each teacher we honored through out the year was given an envelope with a key in it, but only one turned in the ignition of the Versa.

Cindi Nivert teaches in the oracle class offered at Manhattan High School.

The program is offered to all students from freshmen to seniors.

It provides credit recovery and provides extra credit for kids who want or need it.

Students say Nivert has a great heart and provides strategies to prepare them for life.
