Lisa Hales, vice president of marketing for Army Aviation Federal Credit Union, and Ben Bradley, business development officer Troy Branch, represented Army Aviation and congratulated the winners.

“We certainly want to thank Army Aviation for its commitment to community and to young people,” Metzger said.

“And, we want to also thank them for the strong support and help that they have shown to the Johnson Center.”

In an effort to support Army Aviation’s outreach program to young people, the Johnson Center partnered with the federal credit union in sponsoring the Kirby Kangaroo Coloring Contest.

Kirby encourages young people to begin now saving for their future.

Hales said she was pleased with the response to the contest.

“The response was good and we are always interested and involved in educational activities for young people,” she said.

Sh’ana will be a seventh grader at Banks Middle School this year and Todd will be a third grader at Banks Primary School. Sh’ana received a Nintendo DX and game and Todd received a miniature Troy University football helmet signed by Coach Larry Blakeney and four tickets to the Trojans’ opening home football game.
