|Ericson students say thanks for the bus.|
Students and staff at Ericson Elementary School in Mira Mesa are thanking local financial planner Shon Brooks, who recently funded two buses so 144 students, teachers and aides could see A Year with Frog and Toad at the San Diego Junior Theater.
Brooks and his firm, Brooks Financial and Entertainment Consultants, have started the "Sponsor a Bus" program, which can help pay for transportation on field trips, something difficult for schools to do with today's budget constraints. They're also involved in a financial literacy program that helps students learn money management.
"Helping students experience and enjoy educational and inspiring field trips such as this is the whole idea behind the 'Sponsor A Bus' program," said Brooks.
