Spring Branch ISD Good Neighbor always willing to help promote student success



When a Shadow Oaks Elementary family needed clothing and gifts during last year’s holiday season, Texas Mutual Insurance stepped up and provided the resources. 

Texas Mutual Insurance is part of Spring Branch ISD’s Good Neighbor program, an initiative established in 2005 that encourages and recognizes superlative partners. To qualify, an individual or organization must complete three or more activities in support of the district, a school or the Spring Branch Education Foundation (SBEF) in a school year. 

“From leading a Cat in the Hat performance to donating safety equipment, our employees are always willing to volunteer to help strengthen our community,” said Scott Bonds, Texas Mutual Insurance supervisor. “We look forward to continuing to support Spring Branch ISD as the school year starts.”

During the 2021-22 school year, Texas Mutual Insurance also participated in a community panel discussion where students had the opportunity to learn about careers in the industry. The event supported the district’s T-2-4 vision to have every SBISD graduate attain a technical certificate, military training or a two-year or four-year degree. 

“We are grateful to our Good Neighbor at Texas Mutual Insurance for continuously supporting our students and staff,” said Abby Walker, Community Engagement director. “Their partnership shows our students that the community advocates for their success.” 

The company also purchased lunch for the Shadow Oaks team in appreciation for their dedication to students.

“For the past four years, we have been recognized as an SBISD Good Neighbor,” added Bonds. “At Texas Mutual Insurance, one of our core values is service, and that includes giving back to our local communities.”
