TCF Bank today awards Sierra High School in Colorado Springs, Colo. a $1,000 donation for its football program. Sierra High School will receive the $1,000 donation from TCF Bank tonight, Friday, October 31, during halftime at the Stallions home football game at Veteran’s Memorial Stadium. The game starts at 7 p.m.

Sierra High School was nominated for the award by school alumnus, Andrew “Wayne” Mumford, in the TCF Bank High School Grid Iron Sweepstakes that ran at TCF branches from September 13 to 30.

“Mr. Mumford’s pride and enthusiasm for his hometown team were evident in his nomination as was his great sense of community surrounding Sierra High School,” said Mark Jeter, Managing Director, Branch Banking for TCF. “We’re proud to recognize the school, its passionate fan base and the coaching staff for their great work with young people.”

Sierra High School Athletic Director Brian Petzold added: “With the hiring of the new football coach, Phil Jackson, who received all-American, first-team and all-state honors in high school, our football program is more popular than it has been in years. The resulting increase in student interest has depleted our supplies and equipment. This donation from TCF Bank will help our school buy new and safer equipment for our players and help ensure that all students who want to be a part of our football program can be and will be properly equipped.”

TCF Bank is committed to building a better community through programs that seek to benefit students, whether through academics or athletics. TCF Bank also continues to support high school education by offering free financial education courses in more than 200 high schools in the markets it serves to help students make smarter financial decisions.
