National Academy Foundation’s Annual Conference
BrightStar CU is a partner with Broward County Public Schools and their Academy programs. Our partnership includes supporting several student-run credit unions as well as helping teach kids personal financial skills. Sam Chesser, BrightStar’s VP of Marketing, recently accompanied several Broward County Academy teachers at the National Academy Foundation’s annual conference in Washington, D.C. You can see Sam’s head peeking out from behind NAF executive Director, JD Hoye, in the accompanying photo. The Broward group had a great experience at the conference which focused on ways to help prepare students for college and career success. NAF has a proven educational model which includes industry-focused curricula, work-based learning experiences, and business partner expertise for: Finance, Hospitality & Tourism, IT & Engineering. Way to go, Broward County!
