Ellen surprised first-grade teacher Amanda Eaton with a $50,000 check from Wells Fargo! Amanda is one of the finalists for Teacher of the Year in the state of New Hampshire. Like many teachers, she buys things for her students out of her own pocket and even takes them on mini vacations. Additionally, Amanda recently gave her father a kidney, saving his life, and returned to school three weeks later. Wells Fargo’s “small is huge” campaign celebrates how small community efforts add up to huge results. Even things that may seem small can make a huge difference in the lives and communities of those who are touched by them. Find out more about Wells Fargo, here.
