United Way of Northern Utah Awards America First Credit Union

Press Release

July 10, 2012

Volunteers tutoring ninth-grade students at Mt. Ogden Junior High in math earned America First Credit Union (AFCU) thanks and recognition from United Way of Northern Utah (UWNU) with its Bravo Award.

The honor was presented during the annual UWNU Bravo Night at the ATK Conference Center in Ogden Canyon.

Once a week during lunchtime from January through May of this year, eight America First employees working through the credit union’s The Greater Good employee volunteer service program cumulatively donated 96 hours of math tutoring at the school.

The tutors from America First were among other corporate volunteers who helped raise the math grades of 31% (39) of the 126 participating students by one or more grade levels.

“We recognize America First because of its employees’ commitment to excellence in community service,” said Robert Hunter, president and CEO of United Way of Northern Utah. “With their expertise in math and dedication, the employees at America First have made a tangible, lasting impact on the lives of these students, who are now better prepared for high school and have a much higher chance of graduation.”

Of the 118 ninth-grade students tutored by corporate volunteers during the last quarter in either math or language arts, 48 percent increased a grade level in one or more subject areas.

In summary, 57 math students improved their grades in the final quarter of the 2012-13 school year.
