The First National Bank of Pennsylvania recently partnered with The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains to support local education expenses for low and moderate income families.  For the 2011-2012 academic year First National Bank has contributed $6,000 to the Pennsylvania Education Improvement Program which will help The Community Foundation provide tuition assistance to more than 200 students who attend 14 K-12 schools and programs in northeastern Pennsylvania such as private schools, career & technology programs, elementary science programs, and college dual-enrollment classes.   

  The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains, formerly known as The Community Foundation of Susquehanna & Wyoming Counties, has administered the Education Improvement Program since 2003 and in that time has raised more than $1,500,000 for education assistance for 1,700 students attending 37 Pre-K through Secondary schools in four counties, as well as funding projects in two public school districts. 

  Community Foundation President, Peter Quigg, states that "First National Bank is new to our area and we certainly appreciate their concern for our local schools, students, and families.  We welcome the bank as a new participant in our Education Improvement Program."  First National Bank's Vice-President & Wealth Management Officer, Mark Renzini, adds "We are happy to partner with The Community Foundation to help provide educational opportunities for local students."  Both First National Bank and The Community Foundation serve a similar territory in northeastern Pennsylvania and their new collaboration has proven very beneficial for educational endeavors in this region.  For more information about First National Bank please visit www.fnb-online.com.
