Fort Worth Credit Unions and Credit Unions For Kids raised over $102,000 for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth. This was a record year in fundraising for credit unions making them the third largest corporate donor in the Fort Worth market. CMN presented an award hand-painted by a Cook Children’s patient during a recent credit union dinner to commemorate the incredible year.

Twelve deserving students were recently recognized as a “Scholar of the Month” in the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD. The prestigious award program, originated in 2010 by the district’s Education Foundation, recognizes and applauds academic excellence for students in grades 6-11.

Students voluntarily submit an essay that answers the question, “Why I Should Be Scholar of the Month.” Entrants are evaluated on their essay, extra-curricular activities and volunteerism. A different middle school or high school is highlighted each month throughout the school year.

Congratulations to all the winners; each received a $50 Savings Bond, sponsored by EECU Community Credit Union and Crestview Printing, a $25 Wal-Mart gift card and a certificate of achievement from Senator Jane Nelson’s office.
