First Niagara Bank Foundation Contribution to Genesee Community College

The First Niagara Bank Foundation of Lockport contributed an endowment gift of $25,000 to the Genesee Community College Foundation. Every year the income from the award will be used to support an academically talented student. Rebecca Narburgh of Barrie Center is the first recipient of this generous award. Rebecca is a second year student who anticipates graduating from Genesee this May and continuing her education by transferring to SUNY Brockport.

As illustrated in the photograph available at: Niagara Bank Contribution.jpg, Rebecca (middle) and Allen Kidder (right), Associate Dean of the Orleans Campus Center recently visited Ms. Marie Rice (left), the Albion Branch Manager of First Niagara Bank and thanked her for the bank's generous support.
