Credit Union ONE Supports Marching Band
For the sixth year in a row, Credit Union ONE is a supporting sponsor for the Ferndale High School State Champion Marching Band. The Band counts on sponsorship supporters and different fundraisers to help offset the cost of equipment and programs for the Band.
“With the reduced funds that most school districts have to work with, we are very happy to help with the fine arts program at the high school” said John Kozich, Credit Union ONE VP of community relations. “We also want to congratulate the award winning Band.”
Pam Bellaver, school district volunteer and parent said, ”Credit Union ONE has been consistently generous in support of the Ferndale High School music programs by their annual sponsorship of the Ferndale Golden Eagle Marching Band. As a result of this sponsorship combined with others, the band has been able to upgrade instruments, travel to statewide competitions, attend a week long camp at Interlochen, and enjoy their status as a State Championship Marching Band nine years in a row. Thank you Credit Union ONE for your generosity and support in the education and enrichment of so many Ferndale Students.”Go to main navigation
