1+1 Winner: Chase Bitterman

RAPID CITY, S.D. – Thanks to the 1+1 Giveaway, a local special education teacher has some extra money to help his students learn and have fun.

Chase Bitterman is a sixth through eighth grade special education teacher at North Middle School and the recipient of $500 from NewCenter1 and First Interstate Bank.

Bitterman was beyond excited to hear that he had been nominated and won the money. He says it will go a long way with his students. “The kids in my class really like the hands-on stuff. We also do community instruction, so we get to buy groceries each week and cook.”

Ellen Vogel is a loan processor from First Interstate Bank. She says that being able to give back to the teachers, and in turn give back to the students, is something the bank loves being a part of.

Bitterman says this is something that his kids will remember for a long time.
