The School of International Letters and Cultures at Arizona State University, in partnership with the Municipal Credit Union in New York City, was able to provide a group of six students with computers to make their studies easier.
Recognizing that not all students have easy access to technology at home, SILC Business Operations Manager Mark Brantley used his contacts at MNU to secure 10 computers (the extra four computers are available when needed). Brantley is a former board chairman at the institution and its current director.
“The credit union industry philosophy/motto is ‘People Helping People,’” Brantley said, “MCU’s CEO felt this donation was in alignment with that philosophy by assisting students in their educational pursuits.”
SILC Director Nina Berman presented the computers on Nov. 29. When these student complete their education, the computers will be passed on to the next generation that needs them.
The students thanked Berman and Brantley, telling them that the computers provide them increased flexibility, and that at SILC, Brantley “is always welcoming with a smile.”
