SRP announced this week that it would serve as the student section sponsor for the next three years at the University of South Carolina Aiken’s Convocation Center, home of the Pacers.
The multi-year investment expands on SRP’s longstanding relationship with USC Aiken and its athletics programs, including a significant contribution to help fund the construction and 2007 opening of the $17 million, 100,000-square-foot Convocation Center.
“USC Aiken alumni and Pacer fans have supported us across the region as we’ve expanded our reach in the market. This is a way for us to show that same support through a key sponsorship of USC Aiken athletics,” said Eric Jenkins, CEO of SRP Federal Credit Union.
SRP, headquartered in North Augusta, is recognized as the sponsor of the Convocation Center’s Athletic Study Area and uses the center to host its annual membership meeting each spring.
A component of its multi-year agreement with USC Aiken enables SRP to support Pacer athletics with signage in the Convocation Center, use of the facility for events and meetings, and gameday giveaways during collegiate sports seasons.
USC Aiken will use sponsorship proceeds to support the development of its student-athletes, upgrade its athletic facilities, and improve the branding of its ten collegiate sports.
“We look forward to furthering the relationship between SRP Federal Credit Union and our partner institutions to cultivate a culture of stewardship and support for our students and university athletes,” said Dr. Daniel Heimmermann, USC Aiken Chancellor.
