San Diego County Credit Union will present Escondido High School Friday with a $1,000 prize and a private concert by former boy band member Logan Henderson for winning its SDCCU Classroom Heroes program.
The Classroom Heroes program is intended to honor educators and schools for giving students superlative financial education. The credit union accepted nominations via its Instagram account through Nov. 14 and partnered with iHeartMedia radio channel 93.3 for the program.
Henderson is a former member of the now-defunct boy band Big Time Rush. The band was the subject of an eponymous Nickelodeon TV show in 2009 and broke up in 2014. Henderson began work on a solo musical career in 2017 and released a seven-track album on May 18, 2018.
Past winners of the Classroom Heroes program around the county have won performances by pop artists such as Zara Larsson, Alessia Cara and Tori Kelly. The check presentation and private performance are expected to begin just after noon.
