Along with providing sound financial services, “People Helping People” is what First Education is all about.
We try to promote this in every aspect of life, including providing sponsorships for the local events and programs listed below.
“Student of the Week” program
Recently, First Education was recognized by the Laramie County School District 1 (LCSD1) Board of Trustees for supporting the Student of the Week Program.
This is a program we are proud to sponsor. It not only highlights the people that are going to be our leaders, but also shows the results of the hard work our teachers and parents do every day. We thank the Trustees for the recognition, and thank the Administration for the opportunity to sponsor it for the 2021-2022 school year.
The students recognized in the program are not only successful academically, but they are also good people. A theme in all of their profiles is a willingness to help others.
If you want to read more about these amazing kids, just Google “LCSD1 student of the week.”
Cheyenne Schools Foundation
Speaking of people helping people and our schools— First Education is also a primary sponsor of the Cheyenne Schools Foundation. This organization provides grants to teachers and other special funding for LCSD1.
We invite you to join us in supporting two upcoming funding events for the Cheyenne Schools Foundation: Cruise the Legend on July 17th, and their annual Run for Number 1 on August 28th. For more information on each event, visit https://cheyennechoolsfoundation.org. Alternatively, if your business would like to be a sponsor, please contact me at the credit union.
Wyoming Hunger Initiative
Another organization First Education and the Mountain West Credit Union Association is proud to sponsor is the Wyoming Hunger Initiative. This program, started by Wyoming First Lady Jeanie Gordon, has a goal of ending childhood hunger in Wyoming. This is important for education because a child cannot learn if they are hungry. To learn more about the program, visit nohungerwyo.org for more information.
“Work hard at learning, and be willing to help others.”
In closing, I ask that you all please follow the example of the students of the week:
Work hard at learning, and be willing to help others.
