BBVA Compass, the Official Bank of the NBA, teamed up with Houston Rockets power forward Donatas Motiejunas, bank brand ambassador and three-time NBA Champion Bruce Bowen and other NBA greats at the school as part of the BBVA Compass Future Builders Program. The program captures the bank’s desire to give everyone — including young students — a roadmap to a bright future.

Former Rockets players Robert Horry and Houston native John Lucas were also on hand for the event. The NBA stars visited classrooms and computer labs at Rusk, where they talked to students about the importance of staying in school. BBVA Compass volunteers, meantime, spent time in classrooms teaching EverFi’s Vault financial education course to Rusk students.
