 Greater Nevada Credit Union (GNCU) launched a new campaign earlier this month titled Carson CARES, which recognized Carson City School District employees who exemplified positivity in school and made a difference in their school community. 

GNCU awarded five grand prizes where winners received a $500 donation for their classroom or program as well as a $100 gift certificate or gift card to their favorite local restaurant. Additionally, out of all the nominees, one individual was selected in a random drawing to win a hosted pizza party for their classroom or team, valued up to $400.

More than 85 nominations were submitted. Winners include the following:

  • Carson Middle School Counselor Jeremy Batten
  • Carson Middle School Spanish Teacher Janelle Kaufer
  • Carson High School NJROTC Commander Dan Meyer
  • Carson High School Special Education Teacher Brenda Ramirez, the only Spanish-speaking Special ED teacher at Carson High
  • Seeliger Elementary School First Grade Teacher Socorro Vega

Carson Middle School Principal Amy Robinson was also awarded a lunch party worth $400 for her school.

School employees were able to nominate multiple peers. Carson City School District and the Carson City School District Foundation are passionate about creating a foundation in which students can explore, question, succeed and develop in a meaningful and diverse way. GNCU’s passion for “Helping More People Live Greater” drives everything they do. Through GNCU’s Carson Cares campaign, they are helping Carson City School District employees achieve a stronger foundation of financial wellness for greater opportunities with access to tailored benefits.
