WINTERVILLE—First Citizens Bank has fulfilled a substantial contribution it pledged toward the Pitt Community College Foundation’s capital campaign fundraiser two years ago.
Last month, Gordon Jethro, area executive for First Citizens Bank’s Coastal Plain Area, presented a $15,000-check to PCC Foundation officials. It was the final installment of a $50,000-donation the bank made in support of the college’s effort to build new facilities for instructional and student support services.
“First Citizens Bank is proud to partner with Pitt Community College to help students of all ages in our community pursue higher education that will empower them for a lifetime of success,” Jethro said.
PCC Foundation Executive Director Beth Sigmon thanked First Citizens Bank for its support.
“We are so grateful for their contribution to our capital campaign and what that fundraising endeavor is helping PCC do to better meet the region’s workforce development needs,” she said.
