Amy Ferrell did
it. . .Macy’s made it official today in a Facebook webcast that was pre-recorded last week in a packed Performing
Arts Center in Wenatchee.
Ferrell beat out 19-thousand contest applicants in an online poll that garnered
thousands of votes over the last four months. The Wenatchee kindergarten teacher received a treasure trove of
prizes including all-expenses-paid vacations to Italy and New York. Martha Stewart and Kitchen Aide supplied all
new appliances and home furnishings. But it was the main prize presented by Macy’s Corporate marketing director,
Martine Reardon that capped off Amy’s special day. . .
Amy’s dream is to start an after school program that
incorporates literacy and math and provide a home large enough for their family. Amy shared her experiences with
