Testimonials

Marcus Greene
SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT – BB&T

One of the most important priorities at Academy Prep is to ensure that all students have the opportunity to be the best they can be. This extraordinary commitment attracted the interest of BB&T and inspired us to find a special way to help. The BB&T Reading Program supports the needs of the students and provides library resources and classroom books to ensure their academic success. In addition, BB&T employees have the opportunity to volunteer and interact with students in classroom programs, mentor individual students, and assist teachers. The impact of this project will have far-reaching results as a foundation for student achievement for years to come. We are proud of this partnership and look forward to our future involvement.

Nick Kouris
SENIOR MANAGER, MARKET DEVELOPMENT – FLORIDA BLUE

Florida Blue and Academy Prep share a vision. We both want to create a strong and healthy community where people have hope and confidence in the future. That’s why we decided to partner with Academy Prep and support the Fit Families for Life project. This program promotes healthy lifestyles and good decisions for children and their families. The shared dedication to transform our communities is what makes our partnership so special.
