On Tuesday, December 18, 2018, TBA Credit Union CEO Karen Browne presented a check for $9,000 to TCAPS Superintendent Paul Soma at Central Grade School.
The donation will help benefit the 2018-19 TCAPS LEAP Program and the purchase of 10,000 dry erase markers for every elementary student and teacher in the district. The new math curriculum, Math Expressions, utilizes student and teacher whiteboards for instruction.
“TBA Credit Union was founded by Traverse City educators back in 1955 and education is at the core of our mission,” said Karen Browne. “It was such a pleasure to visit Central Grade School and see firsthand how the new markers will be used in the classroom to enhance math and problem-solving skills.”
