NILES — When Brandywine Athletic Director David Sidenbender went searching for a partner to help provide a new electronic scoring table, he turned to Honor Credit Union in Niles.

Honor came through in a big way as it purchased the new scoring table that will be used for volleyball, boys and girls basketball, along with wrestling.

Sidenbender approached Honor Credit Union about six weeks ago, according to Karol Behrle, community assistant vice president. The middle portion of the scoring table is electronic and will be used to display anything from upcoming contests to sponsor ads to graphics and logos.

“Giving back to its communities is a core value at Honor Credit Union,” said Karol Behrle, community assistant vice president at Honor Credit Union in Niles. “When approached by Brandywine High School Athletic Director David Sidenbender about the need for funding for a new electronic scoreboard, Honor was ready and excited to help. When you hear team members talk about being real and local, they’re not just words but actions. Honor truly is a part of the community and giving back to its schools and student-athletes. We are proud to donate funds to the Brandywine Athletics Department and being a supporting partner. Go Bobcats.”

On the left end of the table is the Honor Credit Union logo, while on the right end is the Brandywine Bobcat logo.

“We here at Brandywine are grateful Honor Credit Union helped us out with this new scorer’s table,” Sidenbender said. “It’s state of the art and will provide opportunities to create a new revenue stream for athletics by selling ads on the LED display it has. We will be reaching out to other local businesses as well to allow for advertising and supporting our great sports programs. Honor Credit Union is an awesome organization. Karol and her team do a superb job in networking with, and helping support, local school systems and sports programs.”
