the young people we support today are our future partners in building a better world - both locally and globally.

First Fidelity Reserve of Beaumont, Texas has established the Future of America Scholarship which will be awarded annually to full-time undergraduate students attending Lamar University. The Scholarship program is part of FFR’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative.
Mr. Whitney, the CEO of First Fidelity Reserve stated, "Working for a company that generates good karma through actions that reach out to the community such as our Scholarship program fosters a positive working environment. People prefer to work for a company that aspires to be good and is a welcomed member of its community. Employees recognize there is a benefit to their careers to have a company on their resumes that is recognized not only for its services and products, but also its benevolence to those in need in its community."
The scholarship was established to provide financial support to students from Southeast Texas and is an extension of First Fidelity Reserve’s education and student work initiative programs. More details of the program can be viewed at First Fidelity Reserve’s scholarship website at http://www.firstfidelityreservescholarship.com . First Fidelity Reserve also helps children with schooling needs and a bevy of other benevolent acts.
Mr. Whitney stated that, “As First Fidelity Reserve marks almost a quarter-century of supporting excellence in business education. We realize that the quest to be the best is ongoing. When it comes to education, First Fidelity Reserve's has an unwavering mission that continues to be the development of world-class leaders.”
“Beaumont has always been home,” said Jason Whitney, general manager and president of First Fidelity Reserve. “There is not a community in the world we would rather be a part of or give back to than that of the Golden Triangle. It’s exciting to see our future generation of leaders blossoming before our eyes.”
The vision for the Future of America Scholarship is to support ten students each year at Lamar University within the next five years through an endowment fund. "The way I see it," says Jason, "the young people we support today are our future partners in building a better world - both locally and globally."
