BrightStar Recognized by Broward County School Board
BrightStar was recognized today by Resolution at the meeting of the School Board for Broward County Public Schools as “Philanthropic Donor of the Year”.
In November BrightStar Credit Union was named Broward County’s Outstanding Philanthropic Company for 2010 by the Association of Fundraising Professionals. The Credit Union was presented the award on National Philanthropy Day by the AFP Broward Chapter. BrightStar received this award in large part because of its support for education and for Broward Schools. As a result of winning this award, the Credit Union was invited to the School Board meeting today for further recognition.
School Board member Maureen Dinnen presented the resolution, which was approved unanimously by Board Members. You can read the resolution here. BrightStar CEO Ralph Crockett, Board Chair Dr. Dorothy Orr and VP of Marketing Sam Chesser accepted the award.
At BrightStar, we love Broward Schools. The District, its teachers, administrators, staff and students have been part of our core membership for 65 years. We look forward to continuing our partnership, and we thank the School Board for remembering their Credit Union. J
