Week of Wonder
Due to COVID restrictions we couldn’t have our normal Bossier Federal Christmas Party, so instead we opted to celebrate for an entire week. Every day of the week we treated our team to snacks, gifts, and giveaways. We had so much fun getting in the holiday spirit!
December Gold Star
Congratulations to our December Gold Star Award winner Mrs. Ford! For nearly 30 years she has served the Plain Dealing community, and most notably been the secretary at Carrie Martin Elementary. We are so thankful for her years of dedication to Plain Dealing.
In November we donated coats, jackets, hats, scarves and gloves to the Bossier Schools Parent Center! We were able to buy these jackets with funds that were donated by our Bossier Federal team, which we matched to make an even greater impact!
November Gold Star
We were given the opportunity to recognize Principal Kim Hawkins of Benton Elementary as the November Gold Star Award Winner! In the time that Principal Hawkins has been at Benton Elementary she has brought a personal touch, and teamwork mentality to the school. She is willing to do anything that needs to be done- no task is too big or too small!
October Gold Star
Congratulations to the October Gold Star Award winner, Mrs. Lambert of Haughton Middle School! As an instructional coach for Bossier Schools, her impact on the students and teachers who she encounters every day has not gone unnoticed. She was nominated by her colleague who had nothing but praise for Mrs. Lambert’s dedication to the success of Bossier Parish students and teachers.
International Credit Union Day
In October we celebrated International Credit Union Day! This year’s theme was about uniting in hope for our global community. We are so glad to be a part of the good that Credit Unions are doing all across the world!
CU Lunch Local
We partnered with the CU Lunch Local Initiative to help support some restaurants in our community! During this time it is important to support the local business owners, and we were happy to help in that initiative!
Locals Love Us
If there is one thing you can trust, it is that we love our local community, but it is always nice to know that they love us back! We received our 2020 Locals Love Us Award for “The Best Personal Loans in Shreveport-Bossier.” Our loan department works tirelessly to give our community the help they need to acquire quality loans, and overall financial care.
September Gold Star 2020
In September we awarded another Gold Star Award Winner Col. Dave Hadden, Director of Transportation. Due to the effects of COVID-19, making sure that every student has access to school transportation has been quite the task. In the face of much adversity Col. Hadden, along with the entire Transportation Department, have worked tirelessly to support our community, and ensure that our students have a way to get to school. We are so thankful for his hard work!
BPSB Principals of the year
For many years we have been a sponsor for the BPSB Principals of the Year awards! We look forward to helping to celebrate those principals who do so much for the students in our community. We are so grateful for their impact on the next generation.
Back to School Cookie Cake Deliveries
We participated in our annual back to school cookie deliveries for another year! This is our way of saying “welcome back” to the educators and staff who make an impact on our students each and every day. We look forward to a fantastic year!
September Blood Drive
In September we hosted a blood drive with LifeShare Blood Center! Our members and employees had the opportunity to donate blood, and help save lives. We love being able to partner with organizations that positively impact our community.
Children’s Miracle Network Jeans & T-Shirt Day
In September our team gathered together to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network! In return for their donation they were able to wear their favorite jeans and t-shirt to work. Bossier Federal matched the donations of our team so we could make an even greater impact, and support the Children’s Miracle Network!
BPSB IT Dept. Appreciation Breakfast
IT Departments are often the unseen heroes of any organization. So when we were given the opportunity to thank the Bossier Parish School Board IT Department for their hard work we quickly jumped at it! We honored this hard working department with a great breakfast, and some goody bags as a thank you for everything they did to get ready for virtual school this year, and so much more.
Everyday Hero for 3rd Quarter 2020
Our 3rd quarter Everyday Hero award was given to Lori G! Lori is a nurse in Minden who, when COVID-19 hit, organized a group to help care for the elderly in her community. She made sure they were equipped with the basic essentials they need, and were looked after during an uncertain time.
Helping Hearts – Nicole and Leslie
One morning we got the chance to award two special people with the Helping Hearts Award at Haughton Middle School. Nicole and Leslie have been consistently taking special care of their students since schools have closed due to COVID-19. When students who have needed some extra help and attention, they have been sure to meet their needs even though they haven’t been able to see them face to face everyday. We are so honored to be able to highlight these difference makers with Bossier Schools and Advance Awards & Gifts!
