Peach State Federal Credit Union has pledged $50,000 to the J.M. Tull-Gwinnett Family YMCA to create the Peach State Federal Credit Union Academic Achievement Exploration Room. The YMCA of Metro Atlanta is raising $7.7 million to renovate the J.M. Tull-Gwinnett Family YMCA to increase access to wellness, adaptive aquatics, after school and Early Learning Readiness programs, to ensure that more people in Gwinnett County have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
The Peach State Federal Credit Union Academic Achievement Exploration Room will feature flexible STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) equipment, interactive learning stations and customized room to tinker, innovate, invent and tackle real-life challenges. The space will be key to preparing hundreds of students each year to learn, grow and achieve long-term academic and career success.
The credit union was founded by Gwinnett County educators in 1961 and has maintained a focus on supporting education and teachers throughout their history. “Peach State is proud to support this important project,” said Peach State President/CEO, Marshall Boutwell. “Learning shouldn’t stop when the school day ends—the Academic Achievement Exploration Room will help students continue their education in an engaging way.”
