Last school year First United Bank partnered with Tecumseh Middle School to provide four water bottle filling stations. The partnership was so successful that they committed to partnering with Tecumseh High School to provide their site with four water bottle filling stations this year. Due to many schools wanting to provide safe access to water during the pandemic, there was a shortage in available filling stations to be purchased and that delayed the implementation of this project by a few months. After a much anticipated wait the students at THS now have access to a safe way to drink water at school while reducing plastic bottle waste.
