Our Generous EITC Supporters

The Norwin School District Community Foundation expresses its deep appreciation to First National Bank for donations that support innovative programs for Norwin School District students.
In 2013, First National Bank made a generous $5,000 donation to the Norwin School District Community Foundation through EITC. This donation enabled Norwin School District to hold a 2014 summer camp about electronic circuitry called "Little Bits" for elementary students. The donation provided the high-tech circuitry equipment which students at Hillcrest Intermediate School will enjoy for years to come. At the summer camp, students made innovative creations using magnetic circuits that were pre-wired to function as mechanical or electronic pieces. Students enhanced their projects with artwork to complete a creative, inventive twist to engineering. The camp was led by Ms. Molli Brown, an art teacher at Hillcrest Intermediate School, and Ms. Diana Cardamone, a teacher at both Sunset Valley and Stewartsville elementary schools.

In September 2014, First National Bank made an extraordinary $30,000 donation to the Norwin School District Community Foundation through the state's Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. This will support advanced academic programs for Norwin students. FNB continued their generous support with a $10,000 gift in 2015, and another $10,000 gift in 2016.
