Community First Bank donated $5,500 to support local teachers in Westfield and Noblesville.
The bank is partnering with the Westfield Education Foundation and the Noblesville Schools Education Foundation to offer three mini-grants for teachers.
“We have continued to witness how teachers pivot and persevere through challenges to always give their best to their students, and our team would like to honor and support the work of these educators,” said Robb Blume, President and CEO of Community First Bank. “One of our core beliefs is that we must actively participate in making our communities better places to live, and this partnership is a way for us to continue living that.”
The local winners of the 2021-2022 BFC-funded grants were Atieno Boyd and Heather Young from Miller Success Academy in Noblesville for “Your Future is Bright.” Other winners include Washington Woods Elementary School teacher Jennifer Sawa for “Lunch Bunch Book Club,” while Westfield High School teacher Erin McKinney also received a grant for “Getting Interactive.”
Applications for teacher grants for 2022-23 are now open to Westfield and Noblesville staff, with winners selected in the fall. For more information, visit www.cfbindiana.com.
