Capital Credit Union announces $150,000 donation to Mandan High School

BISMARCK, ND (January 23, 2023) — Capital Credit Union today announced a donation of $150,000 to the Braves Den school store, which will be in the new Mandan High School.

Run by the high school’s DECA organization and marketing students, the Braves Den sells Mandan Braves apparel and accessories. The store provides the opportunity for students to learn about the life cycle of products which are researched, designed, created and sold by fellow students. Proceeds from the Braves Den directly impact marketing class projects, which generate more items for the store, and cover registration fees for marketing students to participate in professional development conferences.

“Supporting the communities where our members work and live is a fundamental part of who we are as a credit union,” says President/CEO Vance Reinbold. “We are proud to be a part of the new Mandan High School with our sponsorship of the Braves Den.”

“Mandan High School is excited to partner with Capital Credit Union in this endeavor,” says Mandan Public Schools Superintendent Mike Bitz. “The contribution they have made to the Braves Den will provide opportunities for Mandan High School students to experience and learn from real-life business and marketing scenarios. The store, which will be open to the public, allows Mandan Braves fans to purchase items to show their school pride.”

Currently under construction, the new Mandan High School will be located just east of Mandan’s Walmart Supercenter. It is scheduled to open in the fall of 2024.
