St. Joseph, MI  –  December 21, 2015  –  Honor Credit Union proudly announced 16 additional winners of their 6th Annual Teacher Awards.

Entrants submitted a short description of what they would use the money for, and the winners were chosen to win $100 to use for their classrooms or schools by a panel of Honor Credit Union team members in November.

After the winners were announced, Honor Credit union decided to award 16 additional teachers, citing there were just too many submissions to choose from. Honor Credit union purchased the items listed on each teacher’s submission, and personally delivered the items to the teacher and their class. Among the items purchased were tricycles, yoga ball chairs, calculators, backpacks, snacks for the classroom, and miscellaneous school supplies. Honor Credit Union spent over $1,600 on these additional items for the specially selected teachers.

Honor Credit Union – It’s Your Money

Although the teachers are happy to have their wish lists filled, the students are really the ones to reap the benefits! Providing local teachers and school faculty the much-needed materials for their classrooms that they otherwise might not have been able to obtain is just one way for Honor to support the men and women who shape our area youth.

One of the ways Honor Credit union gives back to our community is by supporting local schools and athletes in Marquette County. No matter what school your child attends, Honor is a community partner all year long.
