Cabot Teacher Spends Summer Break Biking Across the Country

CABOT, Ark.- A teacher in Cabot spent his summer biking across the country.

Terry Ball rode his bike all the way from Alaska to his home in Arkansas. 

It took him 51 days and more than 3,300 miles to cross more than eight states to make it home in time to begin the start of the school year. 

Ball has been a teacher at Cabot Public Schools for nine years. 

He researched, bought a used bicycle and mapped the course so he would make it back to Arkansas in time for the new school year. 

"To be a role model to the students is important to me," Ball says. "A small action can be a major impact on their lives." 

Ball hopes his dedication and perseverance to a goal is an example to his students.
