26. Buddy Bench Sponsor – In 2017, Educators continued its sponsorship of the Scherrer Cares Buddy Bench Program. A Buddy Bench is a place for kids to go if they are being bullied and need help. It’s also a place for kids to be a buddy to their peers by spreading kindness and building friendships.

27. Pleasant Prairie branch – In February 2017, Educators opened its very first branch in Pleasant Prairie to better serve the community in Kenosha County. On Wednesday, Aug. 2, the Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce gave the Pleasant Prairie branch its annual Kenosha County Beatification Award. This award is given to an organization that has done something to improve the area visually.
