The Houston Dynamo and BBVA Compass launched its Building a Better Mind Initiative at The Rusk School in Houston’s East End, as part of their Building a Better Mind campaign.
Dynamo players Colin Clark, Adam Moffat, Brian Ownby and Nathan Sturgis, along with BBVA Compass and Dynamo officials, read to students in kindergarten through second grade. The event was part of the BBVA Compass literacy program, “Reading Counts,” which promotes the importance of reading to children and provides free books to students.
Teaching children to save lessons were taught by BBVA Compass and Dynamo Officials all week at The Rusk School. The lessons make learning about money fun and allow bankers to help students understand the basic principles of using money wisely.
