Lisa is very deserving of this award and we're so excited to help provide this unique opportunity to her and other Michigan educators.

Lake Trust Credit Union has awarded Michigan Educator Lisa Boulding, Family and Consumer Sciences teacher at Kalamazoo Public Schools, funding through the organization’s Professional Development Award Program.

The Professional Development Award Program, established by Lake Trust in 2010, provides financial assistance to Michigan educators for out of classroom/school professional development opportunities such as workshops, association conferences, and training.

Since 2010, during times when funding has been hard to come by, Lake Trust has supported 23 educators in receiving this specialty training. This year, Boulding will attend the Family & Consumer Science Educator of Michigan Conference in Frankenmuth, MI.

Boulding will gain valuable curriculum information and best practices from other Conference attendees and presenters, that she’ll be able to use for years to come.

Nicole Piche, Student Program Specialist at Lake Trust Credit Union, appreciates the opportunity to help provide this resource for today's educators.

“Lisa is very deserving of this award and I’m so excited that we’re able to help provide this unique opportunity to her and other Michigan educators,” says Piche. “We’re committed to supporting financial education in Michigan schools.”

Lake Trust offers funding for summer/fall 2012 conferences – submit your application by Wednesday, November 14, 2012. Interested educators may email PDaward(at)laketrust(dot)org to request an application.

Lake Trust strongly believes in supporting education in the communities it serves. The organization is currently awarding scholarships to three area high school students through its Lake to Lake Michigan Scholarship Program. In addition, the Credit Union conducted several seminars in February to help parents and students prepare for college and understand their award letters.
