Tucson Federal Credit Union (TFCU) seeks to improve the lives of Pima County residents through quality financial products, financial education, and transformational giving. As the original credit union for the teachers of the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD), TFCU created the annual Legacy Grant as a dedication to the continued advancement of education. The Sí, Se Puede Cyber Café of Pueblo Magnet High School received the $10,000.00 grant, which was announced at TUSD’s March Board Meeting. TFCU’s President/CEO, Susan Stansberry, said, “TFCU designed the Legacy Grant to advance public education where positive results are evident. These funds aim to transform the lives of Tucson’s youth through dedicated execution and positive reinforcement.”

The Cyber Café embodies Pueblo Magnet High School’s impressive commitment to encourage students to improve attendance, grade-point averages, and to graduate from high school. The Cyber Café is a bistro-style, on-campus space with desks, tables, and computer stations. The Cyber Café is open to all Pueblo students as a space to work on projects, classwork, and homework. Part of TFCU’s grant will provide compensation to tutors so that the café can be open before school, during lunch, and after school in order to encourage and foster opportunities for Pueblo students to achieve academically. Dr. H.T. Sanchez, Tucson Unified School District Superintendent, said, “Community and business partnerships are key in the midst of increasing cuts to K-12 education. We’re thankful to Tucson Federal Credit Union for supporting our students at Pueblo Magnet High School.”
