Three Bridgehampton School educators took to the waters and paddled the 18-mile open ocean journey from Montauk to Block Island in early August. In addition to the physical strength and mental aptitude they needed to complete the endeavor, their challenge was to raise funds for Paddlers for Humanity, an East Hampton-based non-profit with a mission of bettering the lives of chidlren on the East End of Long Island.

English teacher Tom House, technology teacher Judiann Carmack-Fayyaz and secondary special education science/math teacher Jeffrey Neubauer raised thousands of dollars for the trip, which House and Carmack-Fayyaz paddled in tandem. They cited the support of P4H from helping to fund Bridgehampton School’s robotics club, Sprouts farmstand and Habitat for Humanity local travel projects.

“This kind of undertaking points to the compassion and dedication these three teachers have for all the children of our local communities,” said Superintendent of Schools Robert Hauser. “We commend their successful efforts.”
