Hoosier Hills Credit Union Donates $5,500 to Richland-Bean Blossom Schools for Ready Schools Initiatives
Hoosier Hills Credit Union was recognized at the July Richland-Bean Blossom School Board meeting for their donation of $5,500 to RBB Schools to fund two initiatives being undertaken at Edgewood High School through the Ready Schools program.
Part of the donation will fund audio podcast equipment for the school. “The podcast equipment will be utilized by teachers and students in flexible ways within classrooms, the media center, and anywhere else students are learning,” said Jaime Miller, Ready Schools Coach and Coordinator. “This will afford students access to the tools they need to practice and develop highly relevant and transferable communication skills in fun and dynamic ways. It will also serve as the first phase in building out the audio/video studio within the Innovative Learning Center, as well as a media production pathway within our high school course offerings.”
The second portion of HHCU’s donation will purchase a refrigerator for the Mustang Coffee Corral, a new student-planned and student-run coffee shop that is being developed. “This ties to our efforts to extend education in entrepreneurship and to grow our high school business department,” commented Miller. “This project involves everything from development of a business plan to understanding staffing needs, how to market the business, and how to implement operations. We are so excited to be able to offer our students these innovative opportunities here at Edgewood High School.”
“Hoosier Hills Credit Union is making an immediate impact in the Ellettsville and Richland-Bean Blossom community, where our newest Service Center is located,” said HHCU President and CEO Travis Markley. “Hoosier Hills Credit Union is committed to being actively involved in the Ellettsville and Richland-Bean Blossom community, where our newest Service Center is located,” said HHCU President and CEO Travis Markley. “We highly value our connection with RBB Schools and look forward to continuing to partner with our communities and educators in creative ways.”
