Education First FCU gives 1M to sponsor LU athletics
BEAUMONT, Texas (2/17/10)--Education First FCU signed on as a sponsor of Lamar University athletics with a $1 million contribution, university officials announced Monday. “This sponsorship will be a tremendous help in bringing back football to Lamar University,” said Lamar President James Simmons. “Education First FCU has had a long relationship with Lamar University (LU),” said Jimmy Lackey, president of the $270 million-asset, Beaumont, Texas-based Education First. The credit union has had an office at Lamar University in Beaumont since 1979, has been a corporate sponsor of LU athletics since 2004 and has endowed scholarships for students at the university since 1990. “We are committed to athletics,” Lackey said. “We’re also committed to higher education; hence our name--Education First. This gift is just another way to support what is going on at the university.” The credit union’s name will be the sole, static sponsor name on the Provost Umphrey Stadium 50-foot by 24-foot digital scoreboard. Education First’s sponsorship of LU athletics will also be acknowledged on marquees, video boards and in game-day publications.
