OnPoint Community CU Now Title Sponsor of Oregon’s High School State Championships
July 9, 2018
OnPoint Community Credit Union has reached an agreement with the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) to make OnPoint the new title sponsor for Oregon’s high school state championships.
The state championships are now called the OSAA/OnPoint Community Credit Union State Championships. The partnership agreement is for five years.
“Through our partnership with the OSAA, OnPoint will be able to have a deeper impact in the communities we serve and advance our commitment to financial education,” said OnPoint President and CEO, Rob Stuart. “The partnership is great for all Oregon high school students who benefit every day from the many OSAA activities that enrich their education. We’re proud to be a small part of their educational journey.”
According to the two organizations, under the partnership agreement, OnPoint will be the title sponsor of all state championship events through 2023, with signage, visibility at all state championships events, online and in official broadcasting of the events, and an integrated OSAA OnPoint state championship logo.
OnPoint and the OSAA will work together to promote financial education and literacy in high schools, including offering resources to classrooms across the state.
The credit union will be the title sponsor of the OSAA Scholar Program, which recognizes all graduating seniors who have achieved a 3.5 or higher cumulative GPA and earned a varsity letter in an OSAA-sanctioned activity at any point in their high school career. New to the program are college grants awarded by OnPoint and the OSAA Foundation to six qualifying students.
OnPoint will also be the title sponsor of the OSAA Academic All-State Program, which recognizes the boys and girls team in each OSAA-sanctioned activity with the highest grade-point average.
Through donations, OnPoint will support the Student Assistance Program, which helps provide athletic gear to students in need. Since its inception, the program has helped an average of 1,146 students from 87 high schools annually.
The OSAA sponsors 118 state championships in 19 interscholastic activities including choir, dance/drill, football, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls swimming, wrestling, cheerleading, baseball, softball, boys and girls track and field, boys and girls tennis, boys and girls golf, band, orchestra, solo music and speech.
