TruStone Financial Credit Union and the Minnesota State High School League, organizations deeply rooted in education, have forged a three-year premier sponsorship agreement that will continue to enrich the experiences of student-participants through education-based activities while also providing recognition and initiating scholarship opportunities. 

Terms of the partnership include sponsorship of the following League recognition programs:  

  • All-Tournament Teams 
  • ExCEL Award 
  • Spotlight on the Arts Award 
  • Most Valuable Teammate Award 

The Minnesota State High School League is a voluntary, non-profit association of public and private schools with a rich tradition of service to Minnesota’s high school students since 1916. More than 500 schools are members of the League. The League provides opportunities in education-based athletics and Fine Arts activities for nearly 256,000 students each school year. Sectional and state championship events are held in 49 activities. To learn more, visit 

“We are thrilled with the partnership forged with TruStone Financial Credit Union and their significant support of the education-based opportunities that are so important to our students and school communities.” League Executive Director Erich Martens said. “The alignment of our rich histories and our shared mission to educate and serve the students and families in our state will further support the great programs and experiences for all students.” 

TruStone Financial is a full-service credit union that has worked to improve the financial well-being of its members since 1939.  

“TruStone has a long history serving the high school community – we were founded as a teachers’ credit union 85 years ago and have grown to serve multiple counties throughout the state,” said Dale Turner, TruStone Financial President and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re excited to collaborate with the MSHSL in the recognition of young champions in athletics, academics and the arts. It’s a natural fit for a neighborhood credit union.” 

With more than $5 billion in assets, a mortgage servicing portfolio of $2 billion, and 23 branches across Minnesota and Wisconsin, TruStone Financial is the state’s second-largest credit union. Earlier this year, TruStone was named one of the nation’s top-performing credit unions by Newsweek Magazine. To learn more, visit
