Service One is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2016 Classroom Supply Grants. Four area teachers were chosen by Service One’s Community Involvement Committee from the many applications submitted. Each was awarded $250 to be used toward classroom supplies or teaching materials.
Teacher Recipients for 2016 are:
* Megan Marcum – 3rd Grade Teacher, Potter Gray
* Ashley Buchanon – 5th Grade Math & Social Studies Teacher, Rockfield Elementary
* Katelyn Mosley – 1st Grade Teacher, Rich Pond Elementary
* Gina Holeman – 1st Grade Teacher, Rockfield Elementary School
Classroom Supply Grants from Service One are designed to help K-12 teachers obtain needed classroom materials. Service One has made available four (4) classroom supply grants of $250 each for K-12 teachers who are members, or immediate family of members.
The supply grants are funded through the credit union’s Skip-a-Payment promotions, where eligible borrowers pay a $10 processing fee to Service One’s Educational Opportunity Fund in exchange for “skipping” their payment for one month.
Other educational initiatives offered by Service One in 2015 included $12,000 in scholarships to students attending Western Kentucky University, participation in the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce’s Business-Education Partnership, participation in the Newspaper in Education program with the Daily News, on-site educational seminars, and the sponsorship of a financial success counselor for the WKU Center for Financial Success. For 2016, Service One has added $2,000 in scholarships offered to students participating in Western Kentucky University’s Study Abroad Program.
