Houston, TX, (August 19, 2013) – First Community Credit Union and The Houston Texans  have  teamed  up  for  their  third  annual  “Stars  in  the  Classroom”  program. The program kicks off on August 19th accepting nominations for teachers who are Stars in their Classroom.  All of the winning and deserving teachers will be awarded football tickets, sideline passes, a $500 donation to the school district, an autographed jersey, and a visit to their classroom from Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing! The nominating student will receive an autographed Houston Texans football. Cushing will make his first classroom appearance in late September.

“Houston is fortunate to have strong teachers that help students realize their potential and reach their goals,” First Community Credit Union President and CEO Ron Downing said.
