During a special awards assembly held on Tuesday, May 23 at Highland Park High School, 2424 SE California Ave., Capitol Federal® joined Highland Park Central Elementary School in honoring its students. Since 1996, Capitol Federal and Highland Park Central have served as Partners in Education, working together to enhance the educational skills and development of students.

Capitol Federal representative and classroom volunteer Tom Hagen joined Highland Park Central Principal Kelley Norman in presenting awards to the two Outstanding 5th Grade Students, one boy and one girl. Award winners include:

Outstanding 5th Grade Student of the Year: Fernando Salas
Outstanding 5th Grade Student of the Year: Monya Dean

Tom Hagen remarked, “This year, CapFed® and Highland Park Central celebrated the 20th anniversary of our partnership. We had 12 CapFed employees volunteering every week in kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade classrooms. Helping our HPC students excel throughout the year was an unforgettable experience and very rewarding for our True Blue® employee volunteers.” 

Principal Norman expressed her appreciation for having Capitol Federal as an educational partner. “Our Highland Park Central Elementary staff truly welcome and value the partnership with Capitol Federal. Working together, we’ve celebrated 20 great years, and the Bank’s involvement has been beneficial to our students’ success. This year, CapFed volunteers assisted in our guided reading program, helping ensure our students are prepared for the future. We look forward to the next school year with CapFed as Partners in Education.”
