The Legacy of a Literacy Icon

“Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.” –Maya Angelou

The world lost another great icon, a legendary voice in literature. According to ABC News, renowned poet, author and civil activist Maya Angelou was called to red on the morning of Wednesday, May 28 in North Carolina. Despite being very frail and having heart problems, Angelou was going strong, finishing a new book.

Miss Angelou came to fame after publishing her first book, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, in 1969. The book, which reflected her life, was a success and was nominated for a National Book Award, and from there the rest is history. In acknowledgment of her phenomenal works, she will be honored at the 2014 MLB Beacon Awards Luncheon.

Her legacy will continue to live on for generations to come.

SAN BERNARDINO, CA- As part of its ongoing commitment to responsible banking and to help increase youth financial education, Union Bank partnered with Operation HOPE (HOPE) and the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Bernardino (BGCSB) to educate high school students about the basics of personal finance using HOPE’s Banking on Our Future curriculum.  Union Bank volunteers Rosella Bernal, Michael Milian and Jason Nesbihal began teaching HOPE’s award-winning youth financial dignity program to members of the BGCSB on April 11.  The five-week course culminated with a recognition ceremony to celebrate the students’ completion of the program May 9. The Banking on Our Future curriculum offers five modules:  Course in Dignity (covers the importance of responsible budgeting and money management), Basics of Budgeting, Get Smart About Banking (Checking and Savings Accounts), Fundamentals of Credit, and Introduction to Savings and Investing.   Each week, students participating in the program learned practical lessons by using hands-on calculations and real-world examples.
