Communities In Schools of Nevada Celebrates Teach Children to Save Day with Nevada State Bank

image006 (1)A $25,000 donation from Nevada State Bank to Communities In Schools of Nevada was made official with a check presentation event held at Mountain View Elementary School – Teach Children to Save Day. Representatives of NSB donated their time to conduct a brief financial literacy project with CIS of Nevada fifth grade students.

“We are so thankful to continue our partnership with Nevada State Bank,” said Diane Fearon, chief executive officer of CIS of Nevada. “The effect they have these kids goes far beyond their generous financial contribution; the education they provide to Communities In Schools of Nevada students is another paver on the road to success for these young children.”

In attendance from NSB were President and Chief Operating Officer, Terry Shirey; Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Tom Edington; Senior Vice President and Community Relations Manager, Drew Zidzik; and Senior Vice President of Marketing Communications, Sandi Milton.

“We work in finance, so crunching numbers is nothing new to us,” said Shirey. “But to have the opportunity to step back in time, remember what it is like to appreciate saving pennies, and educate the youth of Southern Nevada and empower them with the tools that will help guide their future, that is truly a rewarding experience.”

CIS of Nevada students thanked NSB with the presentation of a banner that each of them had signed, and then were dismissed back to their classrooms. NSB representatives were then given a tour of the resource room at Mountain View by Site Coordinator Max Johnson, and Brittany McCoy, resource development manager for CIS of Nevada. From backpacks flush with school supplies and clothing for students who need it, to take-home weekend food packages, the resource room is a place where students can break down the barriers that may otherwise prevent them from reaching their full educational potential.


Communities In Schools wishes to thank NSB for its generous donation and years of partnership.
