SDCCU is proud to recognize Scott Borino as part of SDCCU Classroom Heroes, a program held in partnership with iHeartMedia, Inc. San Diego. Borino is a second grade teacher at Vista Grande Elementary School, located in Tierrasanta, in the San Diego Unified School District.

“SDCCU is proud to honor local teachers like Scott Borino who are going above and beyond in the classroom to inspire students to do their best,” said Teresa Halleck, SDCCU president and CEO.
In his nomination, Borino was commended for being passionate, motivated and an inspirational teacher and mentor to students and parents alike. He was also recognized for bringing new and creative ideas to the classroom, such as teaching his students yoga—helping them maintain their health both academically and physically!
“We understand the important role teachers play in impacting the lives of students, and SDCCU Classroom Heroes is one of the many ways SDCCU is making a positive difference in local schools,” added Halleck.
SDCCU and iHeartMedia are proudly recognizing “Classroom Heroes” throughout 2017. Winning teachers are selected to receive a $500 SDCCU Visa® gift card, plus they are recognized as a Classroom Hero on a billboard in their community.
