Firstmark Credit Union donates two $500 awards

NEISD teachers Sherri McShane of Northwood Elementary School and Diane Valderama of Reagan High School were selected as winner's in the 10th Annual Educator’s Award program for Firstmark Credit Union. McShane intends to use her award to purchase an iPad for the classroom to be used for reading and math. Valderama hopes that a garden will help inspire her special education class.

"I was both stunned and delighted upon receiving the letter from Firstmark," said McShane. "I can't wait to get the iPad and start using it with my students!"

The award program is designed with full-time educators of kindergarten through 12th grades in mind. Firstmark Credit Union awarded ten scholarships across Bexar County of $500 to each educator. The scholarship program was open to public school and private school educators. Through the application, educators were asked to explain how they would use the scholarship funds and what impact the award would have on their students and in their classrooms.
