True Sky Credit Union Gives Shopping Spree To Deserving Teachers

Thursday, August 4th 2022, 6:13 pm


We all know teachers need help buying school supplies for their classrooms, and with school just around the corner, a few teachers got a shopping spree.  

“Getting things for my class, you never think about how much it costs but usually we pay for it ourselves,” said Michelle Serjeant, Mustang Elementary school teacher.  

True Sky Credit decided to do a shopping spree for six deserving teachers selected by their school administrators.  

“Last year was our first one and we had so much fun that we wanted to expand it this year, so this is our second year,” said Julie Gamblin with True Sky Credit Union.  

True Sky opened 76 years ago, so participants had 76 seconds to get anything they wanted from Lakeshore learning store.  

“It was a little stressful, my heart was beating really fast buy it was really exciting,” said Serjeant.  

Each teacher had a strategy of how to get everything they wanted, some even did their homework. 

“I’d came up earlier in the week and kind of mapped it out,” said Staci Hudson Tuttle School teacher.  

The teachers were cheered on by their colleagues and True Sky workers and took full advantage of the 76 seconds. The teachers all agreed the time went really fast.  

“It’s a lot of fun for us to be able to see the teachers and get to give back to the community,” said Gamblin.  

Even though most teachers buy items on their own for the year, this shopping spree really helped them get things they never could have gotten.  

"These chairs, they’re quite expensive and I may have been able to grab a couple on my own, but I would have had to plan to be able to get them,” said Serjeant.  

“That was a lot of money, and so of course, I mean I would have gotten a few things, because we do usually get a little of money to do that, but the amount of things that I got, never,” said Hudson.  

As items were totaled up teachers left a little tired but all smiles thinking about their students  

“They’re going to really enjoy it and benefit greatly from it,” said Hudson.  

True Sky has decided to give two more shopping sprees to deserving schoolteachers. Teachers can be nominated through True Sky’s social media pages, @TrueskyCU
