Grant will help fund student scholarships at Wyoming Seminary
First National Community Bank (FNCB), the largest community bank in Northeastern Pennsylvania, today announced an $8,000 Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) donation to benefit the scholarship fund at Wyoming Seminary.
Through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program, FNCB contributed more than $181,000 in 2012 to eligible scholarship, educational improvement, and pre-kindergarten scholarship organizations across Lackawanna, Luzerne, Wayne and Monroe counties.
The donation to Wyoming Seminary will be used to provide scholarship assistance to students attending the Lower, Middle and Upper School campuses.
"Wyoming Seminary is most grateful for the continued support of FNCB through the EITC program," said John Shafer, Vice President of Advancement at the school. "Through this generous donation FNCB is helping to make a quality educational experience possible for academically talented students who otherwise would not be able to attend our Lower, Middle or Upper Schools."
The support of Wyoming Seminary represents part of FNCB's larger Community Caring initiative. Through outreach programs, donations and an employee volunteer network, FNCB is committed to helping the communities they serve.
Founded in 1910, FNCB supports its mission: Simply a better bank(tm) with an endless commitment to the communities they serve.
