Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union (BVSCU) has committed to supporting Katy ISD students by becoming a 2012 KEYS Scholarship Platinum Sponsor. As a KEYS sponsor, BVSCU is helping to create scholarships for students who have participated in KEYS through their senior year. One-hundred percent of their contribution will go directly to KEYS Scholarships.
“Employees at Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union have supported KEYS for more than ten years and know the direct benefit that students are getting from the program,” says Joe Simmons, president and CEO of BVSCU. “It felt natural for us to join forces to help support these students as they enter post-secondary schools.”
The KEYS (Keep Encouraging Youth toward Success) mentor program is offered to Katy ISD students who are on the brink of success. Often, these students have been challenged by life circumstances outside of their control. Mentors meet with their students on campus each week during the school year, during the school day.
“Our partnership with Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union is treasured by every Katy ISD campus. Brazos Valley’s incredible generosity in sharing their resources, both human and financial, makes a difference every day in our school district. This is just one more example of their faithful commitment to our children,” says Martha Brown, Katy ISD Partners in Education.
Founded in 1954, Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union (BVSCU) serves educators, faculty, staff, their families and other qualified individuals within a 13-county area of Texas. With 10 convenient locations, BVSCU provides comprehensive financial services including loans, checking and savings. BVSCU is federally accredited by the NCUA, an Equal Housing Lender and a member of the Texas Credit Union League. For more information, visit bvscu.org or call 281-391-2149.
KEYS’ annual event Ties & Tiaras, hosted at Agave Road on March 1, will celebrate mentors while supporting the KEYS Scholarship Fund. Featuring student performances throughout the come-and-go event, the 2012 Mentors of the Year will also be announced.
