Northeastern State University recently received a $6,000 donation from TTCU The Credit Union as part of TTCU’s School Pride Visa Check Card program for area schools.
Through the School Pride program, which supports more than 50 area schools, NSU gets a donation each time a purchase is made using an NSU-branded card.
“At TTCU, we work and live right alongside our members, so it’s truly important to us to give back locally,” says Donita Quesnel, vice president of marketing for TTCU. “And what better way to do that than to support our schools, which are the heart of our communities.”
NSU Foundation Director Peggy Glenn says funds from this program have previously been used to support the NSU faculty Circle of Excellence awards, which are cash awards for faculty excelling in research, teaching and service.
“The NSU Foundation greatly appreciates support from community organizations such as TTCU, especially when those funds can be used to support NSU’s greatest needs,” Glenn says.
