American Fidelity in the Community

American Fidelity in the Community


American Fidelity doesn’t just value educators as our Customers; we also support their efforts in the classroom through a variety of sponsorships geared toward rewarding teachers and helping them engage their students.


Last week, I had an opportunity to see three of our programs in action.


The Rolling Thunder Book Bus came to a stop at Oklahoma City’s Sequoyah Elementary School. Players Cameron Payne and Semaj Christon helped students pick out a book that they will get to keep and read. The kids had a great time and got to take a group photo with the players after picking out their books.

The Rolling Thunder is one of the team’s several literacy initiatives sponsored by American Fidelity. Since its debut in 2009, the bus has visited nearly 1,600 schools and day care programs distributing more than 126,000 books to children.


Other Read to Achieve programs American Fidelity sponsors with the Thunder include the Teacher of the Game, Reading Time Outs and Thunder Reading Challenge.


On Friday, I was able to hang out with KFOR meteorologist Aaron Brackett at Steed Elementary in Midwest City while he presented Weatherschool, a program designed to teach elementary students about the weather. In addition to the live in-school programs, Weatherschool offers online curriculum teachers can use in their science classes.

This week, Magic 104 radio recognized our first Teacher Feature winner of the school year. On Monday, radio personality Jeff “Magic Man” Roberts went to Crooked Oak High School to thank history teacher Jason Smith for sharing his love of learning with students.


When I see these programs in action, I’m proud to work for a Company that supports educators, not only by specializing in helping them provide for their financial future, but also by recognizing and honoring their roles in the lives of our children.


What makes you proud to work for your company?

AF Colleagues Spring into Wellness

April 11, 2016 04:53 AM

American Fidelity is dedicated to the health and wellness of our Colleagues and that’s why we offer opportunities for them to get up and move. Just last week the AF Wellness Team put on a wellness carnival, Spring into Wellness. More than 200 Colleagues joined us on our outdoor property at 9K for a quick, fun, healthy break in the afternoon. Colleagues participated in a scavenger hunt where they took a walk around our walking trail and played ping pong, musical chairs, basketball and catch. Some Colleagues took the relaxing route and painted a spring picture while sitting on the patio. Healthy snacks were also offered for Colleagues. Check out some pictures from the event.

Wellness Events Also Give Back

April 6, 2016 05:18 AM

HeartWalk16 Our Colleagues enjoy participating in community wellness activities. And when those activities also have a charitable aspect, the appeal is even stronger!

This weekend, Colleagues will participate in two separate activities that promote both: The Redbud Classic and the Heart Walk.

Colleagues have been forming a team to support the Oklahoma City Heart Walk for several years. This year’s event is Saturday. Funds raised will help support the American Heart Association’s mission to raise awareness of the dangers of heart disease, to change behaviors that impact heart disease and to fund research for treatment options.

Each year, a grassroots team of Colleagues dedicated to the cause spearheads the efforts. A new T-shirt design is created and offered for sale with all proceeds going to the American Heart Association.

The event includes a 5K walk as well as activities to encourage kids to get up and get moving.

The Redbud Classic is a two-day event on Saturday and Sunday. It includes cycling, a 10K run, a 5K run, a wheelchair race and a kids’ fun run. The event culminates with the Redbud Bash.

In addition to promoting physical activity in a fun environment, proceeds from Redbud entry fees are donated to a different charity each year.This year’s recipient is Pepper’s Ranch, an organization dedicated to supporting short-term foster care solutions that strive to keep siblings together.

Colleagues Go Bald for Childhood Cancer Research 2016

April 4, 2016 07:47 AM

St_Baldricks_Before Today, nine American Fidelity Colleagues are showing off their newly shaved heads after helping the St. Baldrick’s Foundation raise money and awareness for childhood cancer research.

Colleagues have participated in the event for the last several years. This year, the team features nine Colleagues, mostly from the Information Systems Division, who joined the Brethren of Bald team. Together, they’ve raised more than $7,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

The team members allowed their heads to be shaved on Sunday after collecting donations from fellow Colleagues, family members and friends. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation has funded more than $178 million in research grants in an effort to find treatments and cures for different types of childhood cancer.

According to the organization, more than 175,000 children are diagnosed with some form of cancer every year, and more children die from the disease than all other diseases combined.

The Oklahoma City shaving event is one of hundreds planned nationwide in 2016. Colleague Aaron Stockton served as this year’s Brethren of Bald team captain. He has been shaving his head for the cause for several years. This year’s lone female team member is Brooke Boevers, who is a team leader in our benefits department. Other team members are Steve Gaither, Brian Whitley, John Spaid, Joseph Peters, Anthony Andrews, Lou Harmon and George Nelson. St_Baldricks_After “The event is to help raise awareness and money for underfunded children’s cancer research,” Aaron said. “These grants also help researchers find less invasive and more successful treatments against childhood cancer.”

In addition to taking donations, the team also sold a Brethren of Bald T-shirt, with proceeds going to the cause.

Would you shave your head to help raise money and awareness for childhood cancer research?
