Teachers Credit Union (TCU) has announced a ten year naming rights sponsorship agreement with the South Bend Community School Corporation (SBCSC). Located at 528 South Eddy Street in South Bend, Indiana, the stadium is the home football venue for Adams High School and Washington High School. Per the terms of the agreement, the former “School Field” will be named “TCU School Field” for the next ten years. The credit union’s annual financial commitment of $30,000 will be made to the South Bend Education Foundation for use by the school system.
“We are very grateful to Teachers Credit Union for this new partnership agreement. Not only will it benefit the student-athletes who play at TCU School Field, but their support will help fund science and technology programs for our students. Because of the school corporation’s history with TCU, it is very appropriate that they are our inaugural naming rights sponsor.” Kenneth Spells (Superintendent of the South Bend Community School Corporation)
TCU is Indiana’s largest credit union with more than $3 billion in assets and fifty-five branches throughout the state of Indiana and Southwest Michigan. In addition to financial support for the stadium, the two year cash management agreement that TCU has with the SBCSC has been extended to a period of ten years. According a press release at TCUNET.com, signage noting the TCU School Field name will be installed this Fall. New lighting and artificial turf will also be added for the 2018 season as part of a host of renovations planned by the school system.
“TCU is excited to announce an expanded partnership with South Bend Schools to enhance the academic and athletic experience of students. This is a natural partnership for TCU and dates to our founding in 1931 when a group of South Bend school teachers joined together to form TCU. While times have changed, providing a quality education is still just as important today and we’re pleased to partner to make a positive impact.” Paul Marsh (President/CEO of Texas Credit Union)
