Warsaw Community Schools announced a five-year partnership with SYM Financial Advisors to cover the cost of all-sport passes for all ninth- to 12th-grade Warsaw Community High School students.  

In celebration of the partnership, the Warsaw Tiger cheer block will be identified as the “SYM Zone.” Students can look for the orange SYM Zone logo at all regular home athletic events, including basketball and football games, according to a news release from WCS.

The firm’s aim is to relieve the burden of cost in the decisions students make about how to spend their time. SYM recognizes that being a spectator at high school sports can be as impactful as playing in them, the release states.

“As Warsaw natives, my brother Steve and I witnessed first-hand how this community comes together to support the Tigers. Athletics is an important extension of education.  With this partnership, we follow the lead of others in this community who have and continue to support the Tigers.  Our desire is to enhance the best home court in the state of Indiana,” said Jerry Yeager, CEO at SYM Financial.

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with WCHS in this endeavor. Having more students present at Tiger sporting events is a positive for the community, the school and the athletic teams," said Steve Yeager, principal and senior financial advisor at SYM Financial. “But the most important part is the impact it may have on students who might otherwise choose not to attend due to the cost barrier.”

“We are extremely thankful to SYM financial for sponsoring our high school students’ all-sports passes. This is a great way to promote school and community spirit while also providing a safe environment for high school students. Go Tigers!” said Dr. David Hoffert, superintendent of WCS.
