Valley Credit Union steps up to guarantee a memorable senior year for local students through title sponsorship of Billings All High School graduation celebrations

BILLINGS, MT (February 18, 2021)

Valley Credit Union is thrilled to announce their $15,000 title sponsorship of the Billings All High School graduation celebrations (BAHS graduation celebrations). Each local high school (Senior, West, and Skyview) has received $5,000 from the credit union to ensure graduating seniors get the traditional high school sendoff they deserve during each school’s all-night drug and alcohol-free parties following graduation, May 30, 2021.

Although celebration plans are still in the works from the schools and the BAHS Graduation Celebrations Committee, each school is intending to celebrate with the all-night parties and additional outdoor events in the spring. Schools are planning parades for seniors again so that grandparents, extended family and friends can help celebrate the grads since, at this time, the graduation ceremonies at Metra will be limited attendance again. Valley Credit Union’s Title Sponsorship will support all the events held by schools this spring, and Valley intends to participate in the parade with the lead float.

“With so many changes made to prioritize students’ safety this year, including the cancelation of school dances and sporting events, this end of year high school celebration is one way to give these deserving students a senior year experience they will truly never forget,” said Brandon Scala, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Valley Credit Union. “All of us here at Valley Credit Union are eager to do our part to make this a memorable affair for the high school seniors in our community that have worked so hard to achieve this milestone.”

With over 1,200 graduating seniors this year, funding from Valley Credit Union and other donors will partially go towards various prizes, scholarships, and gifts that will be distributed, guaranteeing each student leaves the festivities with something special.

“We are so excited and grateful to have Valley Credit Union as title sponsor for Billings All High School Graduation Celebrations this year,” said Perrin Grubbs, Fundraising Chair of Billings All High School Graduation Celebrations Committee. “Valley has always supported our schools, and their generous commitment to the Class of 2021 will make a remarkable difference in the way our seniors will be able to remember this year and celebrate all they have accomplished. The changes to the school year due to Covid-19 have had a big impact on our seniors. But having the support of organizations like Valley will make a lasting, positive impact on their lives. We are thankful for Valley’s continued commitment to our students and our schools.”
