EECU is pleased to announce that Braxten Boyd and Corenda Eggleston both of Hillsdale are two of the 12 winners in a national contest that promotes environmental awareness and thrift among children. Braxten and Corenda are members of EECU’s Johnny Appleseed Junior Ecology Club, a nationwide program sponsored by financial institutions interested in helping young people to learn more about ecology and smart money management.
Braxten and Corenda created drawings with a theme of recycling and conserving that will be featured in the Johnny Appleseed Club’s 2012 national calendar. Both drawings were chosen from hundreds of entries in the national contest.
“We’re very proud of Braxten and Corenda and all of our Johnny Appleseed Club members,” says Renée Allen, Operations and Marketing Director for EECU. “Through club activities, we are able to foster environmental awareness among youth in the community and also teach values in fiscal management that they need to become responsible adults.”
Braxten and Corenda were honored at EECU’s Hillsdale branch for their status in winning the contest, and they were both awarded a $50.00 check for their outstanding efforts.
