One Nevada Credit Union, one of the largest locally owned credit unions in the state, is pleased to announce it's the new title sponsor of the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA).
The announcement was made at the state basketball championships, held in Las Vegas. The multi-year partnership commenced immediately with the state basketball championships referred to as the NIAA/One Nevada State Basketball Championship.
The four key elements of the sponsorship include One Nevada as NIAA's Title Sponsor giving them presence at all sanctioned high school events and activities; the introduction of the One Nevada Cup, an elite sportsmanship award; Title Sponsor of the NIAA's Top 10 Student Athlete Awards offering $20,000 in scholarships annually, and Title Sponsorship of a the NIAA Student Financial Well-Being program where they'll offer tools, advice and expertise to help students and their families build lifelong financial well-being.
One Nevada is proud to support the NIAA, a non-profit organization that serves as the governing body for all Nevada high school athletics and activities. The NIAA conducts 220 Regional and State Championships annually across numerous sports activities participated in by 42,000 student athletes.
"What excites me most about this partnership, is the fit," said Paul Parrish, One Nevada President and CEO. "At One Nevada, we're driven by four core values: leadership, integrity, service, and teamwork, and we believe participation in high school athletics and activities helps develop these values in Nevada's youth. Plus, through our sponsorship of the NIAA student financial well-being program, we're committed to helping students and their families build life-long financial well-being."
