TruStone Financial Federal Credit Union donated $10,000 to nine high schools in sponsorship of KARE 11’s Prep Sports Hot Highlights. During each week’s on-air segment, KARE 11 Sports Director Randy Shaver nominated three top football plays from area schools. After being put to a popular vote on KARE 11’s Facebook page, TruStone Financial donated $1,000 to each of the winning schools’ general athletic and activity funds.
One of the big, $1,000 winners was St. Michael-Albertville, thanks to the standout play of Xavier Thurman and the Knights football program.
“As an organization who values education and investing in our local communities, we are proud to support area schools with our KARE 11 Prep Sports Hot Highlights partnership,” said TruStone Financial’s Chief Business Officer Steve Steen. “On behalf of your neighborhood credit union, I’d like to extend a warm congratulations to all of our 2017 recipients.”
To celebrate their Hot Highlights win, TruStone Financial presented a check to each week’s nominated player(s) at their school and encouraged coaches, teammates and athletic staff to join in on the fun. From St. Michael-Albertville High School, player Xavier Thurman was featured for his exciting play this fall.
After three seasons of sponsoring KARE 11’s Prep Sports Hot Highlights segment, Randy Shaver said, “I’m thankful for our partnership with TruStone Financial over the last few years and look forward to future opportunities together.”
