Northeast Community Credit Union is helping to sponsor Doe Elementary School’s End of the Year Celebration.

NCCU donated funds to Doe Elementary’s celebration to reward the students for all their hard work during this unconventional school year.

“We have witnessed firsthand how hard the students have worked during virtual learning and how they are doing everything they can to stay in face-to-face learning,” Sadie Fletcher, faculty at Doe Elementary, said. “Students are taking extra precautions and going the extra mile to keep themselves and their classmates safe and healthy. They have made it through an entire school year of new procedures and policies and we at Doe feel like they deserve to be celebrated for those accomplishments.”

Northeast Community Credit Union has been serving our community since October 1952 when it was chartered as a credit union by the State of Tennessee.

Thank YOU for voting for us and we are honored to be your Number 1 Credit Union!

Juli Nave, director of the Family Resource Center for Carter County Schools, is the latest Northeast Community Credit Union Helping Teacher’s Teach grant winner.

Nave plans to use the grant to start a mini food pantry for Carter County School students. The pantry will be stocked with items like granola bars, cereals, rice, beans, peanut butter, bread, coffee, tea and macaroni and cheese. The funding could also be used to help supplement existing food pantries at individual schools.

“The Covid pandemic is still happening,” Nave said. “Some parents have lost jobs, so food may be hard to come by for some families. Having access to extra food would be a blessing to some of our students.”

Northeast Community Credit Union awards $300 every month to a classroom to be utilized for classroom needs, classroom activities, and academic enrichment.  Helping Teachers Teach is open to teachers within Carter, Johnson, Unicoi, Sullivan and Washington counties who are members of Northeast Community Credit Union. Area teachers may become members online or at any NCCU location and can download the grant application on the credit union’s website:  www.BeMyCU.org.

Amanda Banner, Spanish teacher at Hampton High School, is the latest Northeast Community Credit

Wesley Murray of NCCU virtually presented the grant to HTT winner Amy Banner.

Union Helping Teacher’s Teach grant winner.

Banner plans to use the Helping Teachers Teach grant to purchase a set of Spanish language novels to help promote free voluntary reading, or recreational reading, among her students. The novels are written with Spanish language learners in mind to help them acquire and retain more of the language they are learning.

“This project will help me provide level appropriate, high interest readers for my students and help them to exponentially grow their vocabulary in Spanish,” Banner said. “Evidence from several areas continues to show that those who do more free voluntary reading show better development in reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary.”
