Thank you to First National Bank for the $2,500 Grant for “Money Matters: Make it Count”. This program is part of a larger program aimed at helping our high school students pursue a higher education, vocational opportunity or immediate employment that provides a livable wage with benefits. The larger program, Project Elevate, consists of academic monitoring, a character & leadership development course, ACT/SAT testing support, 3 college visits, a visit to a federal penitentiary and a financial literacy course. This application is for support of the financial literacy portion of Project Elevate.
