First National Community Bank (FNCB), locally-based for over 100 years, today announced the 2015 graduating class from its Emerging Leaders program. The Emerging Leaders program is a six-month long employee development course that provides leadership training through creativity and teamwork while making an impact in the community.
A key component of the program involved class members designing team-based projects aimed at meeting specific needs in the local community. Organizations benefiting from Emerging Leader service projects included; St. Francis of Assisi Kitchen, The Baby Pantry at St. Joseph’s Center, Treasure House Scranton and Family to Family Thanksgiving Dinner Program.
Overall, the 14 graduates combined to volunteer more than 100 hours at their respective organizations.
“This was our fifth graduating class,” said Senior Vice President, Human Resources Officer Donald Ryan. “Every year the program grows and impacts different organizations. Since launching the program, we have helped more than 20 organizations meet a specific need. We are proud of what we have accomplished and look forward to helping many others.”
The Emerging Leaders program is part of a larger Community Caring initiative. As a true, local community bank, FNCB is making a difference through volunteerism, donations and outreach programs.
