17 Year Partnership with Highland Park Central



Highland Park Central Elementary School has a very good friend in Capitol Federal Savings.  Last week Capitol Federal President and CEO John Dicus and Highland Park Central Principal Cleo Gardner renewed their business-school partnership, a partnership that begins its 17th year.   Capitol Federal employees began volunteering to read with students and tutor them back in 1996.  Volunteers continue to do so today along with volunteering to help with various school events.  “Seeing the students’ progress toward their goals is so gratifying,” said Dicus.  Gardner commented, “Capital Federal’s commitment to our students and their educational progress is incredibly valuable.  They are wonderful role models for our students.”
