Salvation Army Angel Tree Donations
In December we dropped off our gifts for the Salvation Army Angel Tree children we sponsored. We are so glad we had the opportunity to give back to some of the children in our community so they can have a better Christmas this year. There are many ways you can contribute to our local Salvation Army, don’t hesitate to find ways to get involved!
December 2022 Gold Star
Our December Gold Star Award Winner is Ms. Travisa Foster of BPSTIL. The staff of BPSTIL came together to write a moving nomination on Ms. Foster’s behalf. Their nomination read of her willingness to go all in at BPSTIL since arriving there, and spoke of her dedication to the success of students that sometimes go unseen. We feel like she perfectly exemplifies the traits of a Gold Star, and we are so glad to have her as our last Gold Star of 2022!
November 2022 Gold Star
We had the honor of awarding our November 2022 Gold Star Award to a very deserving educator in Bossier Parish. Leslie Raley of TL Rodes has been called dedicated, welcoming, passionate, and a team player. Her colleagues describe her as always ready to lend a helping hand, and willing to continue to develop professionally. We are proud to have her as our November Gold Star!
All Staff Volunteer Day
In November we hosted our first ever All Staff Volunteer and Team Building Day! We spent the first half of our day contributing to charitable organizations, and the second half doing team building activities. We helped pack boxes for operation Christmas child, organized at the Bossier Schools Parent Education Center, built bikes for Gifts of Hope, packed bags at the Bossier Sheriff’s Food Bank, and helped clean and organize at the Salvation Army in preparation for the Angel Trees.
October 2022 Gold Star
In Gretchen Phillips’ time at Parkway High School she has made meaningful impact on her students. She has inspired them to become future educators, confident speakers, and has left an impression on them that lasts even after they graduate. We feel confident that she was the best choice for our October 2022 Gold Star!
Red River Revel Volunteer Day
For a week members of the Bossier Federal team volunteered at coupon booths and the information booth at the Red River Revel. When you visit the Revel you are supporting a celebration of the arts that brings visitors from near and far. We were excited to be a part of this community endeavor!
September 2022 Gold Star
Christy Bucker is our September 2022 Gold Star Award Winner, and we truly don’t think we could have found a more fitting recipient to kick off the year. Nominations for Christy spoke about her willingness to always jump in on a project, how she is truly a leader in her field, and that she has spearheaded programs that help the students in Bossier Parish on a new level. We are so grateful for her contributions to Bossier Schools!
Back to School Cookie Cakes
One thing you can guarantee about Bossier Federal: we love our educators! At the beginning of the school year we delivered Back To School Cookie Cakes to all of the Bossier Parish schools and centers, and we have had a fantastic time!
2022 BYL Kickoff
In August we hosted the Kick-Off Welcome Reception for the Bossier Youth Leadership program with the Bossier Chamber of Commerce! We have helped sponsor this event for years, and feel confident that the skills and lessons that the students learn while going through BYL will help them in the future.
Locals Love Us 2022-2023
We were excited to find out that we had been voted as a Locals Love Us winner in banking, credit unions and personal loans! As a credit union, we do our best to love and care for those in our community. We are so grateful to know that our community loves us back!
New Teacher Welcome Bags
We joined the Bossier Chamber of Commerce in delivering welcome bags to new teachers in Bossier Parish! We love partnering with the chamber, and showing teachers in our community how grateful we are for all that they do. It’s going to be a fantastic school year!
Teacher In Service
In August we sponsored breakfast for the New Teachers Inservice Training with Bossier Schools! We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with the Bossier Parish School Board.
Summer Block Party
We didn’t let the dreary day keep us away from hosting our Summer Block Party! We hosted a LifeShare blood drive, and document shredding from Ark-La-Tex Shredding Company along with some sweet Streetcar Snoballs!
We got to experience all the fun of the Red River Balloon Rally in June! This year we were balloon sponsors for the first time, and it was exciting to see our community come together for such a fun event. Thank you to those who helped make the Red River Balloon Rally happen, we look forward to next year!
Gold Star Banquet 2022
We finally celebrated our Bossier Schools Gold Stars of 2021-2022! We had a fantastic time enjoying the musical stylings of the Talented Arts Program Jazz Band, dinner and dessert from the Hilton Garden Inn Shreveport Bossier, and a presentation honoring all of our amazing winners. That is officially a wrap on the Gold Star Program for this school year, we can’t wait to see what all will happen next year!
April 2022 Gold Star
We presented our final Gold Star Award of 2022 to Sharon Hollins! In her time at Meadowview she has been known to be the kind of person who always has a smile on her face, and is ready to lend a hand. She has helped her kindergarten students grow and learn, and helped her fellow teachers feel supported and encouraged. We truly believe we saved the best for last!
