PLYMOUTH, Minn. (Dec. 10, 2019) – This fall, TruStone Financial Federal Credit Union donated a total of $10,000 to nine high school athletics programs as a sponsor of KARE 11’s Prep Sports Hot Highlights. Each week, KARE 11 News Anchor Randy Shaver nominated three top football plays from area high schools, and KARE 11’s social media followers picked a favorite. The winner was announced every Friday, and TruStone Financial donated $1,000 to each of the winning schools’ general athletic and activity funds.
“High school sports build important skills like teamwork and commitment,” said TruStone Financial’s Chief Business Officer Steve Steen. “We are proud to support local athletes through this partnership.”
To celebrate their Hot Highlights win, TruStone Financial presented a check to each week’s winning player(s) and team at their school and congratulated them on social media.
“We are very grateful to TruStone Financial for continuing to support Hot Highlights,” said Shaver. “The credit union has been a dedicated sponsor of the Prep Sports Extra for the past five years, and we wouldn’t be able to do it without partners like them.”
