First National Bank Executive Serves as Panelist at Congressional Briefing
Lloyd Lamm Addresses Benefits of Early Childhood Education

Harrisburg, PA – March 9, 2011 - Lloyd Lamm, Regional Banking Executive for the Capital Region of First National Bank of Pennsylvania, will serve as a panelist at a congressional briefing focused on the business imperative for improving early childhood education. Lamm and two other business leaders will present the economic benefits of investing in childhood education to members of the United States Congress in Washington, DC, on March 11, 2011.

Lamm is a member of Pennsylvania’s Early Learning Investment Commission, which functions to secure support for public investment in early learning practices that are educationally, economically and scientifically sound. The Commission considers early childhood education initiatives as essential to the forward movement of our country. Lamm agrees, “Investing in early childhood education is a fiscally responsible way to reduce deficits and produce big gains for children and taxpayers. It is time we talk about protecting our current investments and, as necessary, increasing funding for early childhood education. Our nation’s prosperity depends on both.”

Statistics show that investment in early childhood education results in a 10 percent return on investment. Business leaders like Lamm claim that the United States must invest in young children to help our country remain competitive on economic fronts.

Other panelists include Rob Grunewald, associate economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and Al Stroucken, Chairman and CEO of Owens-Illinois, Inc., the world’s leading glass container manufacturer.

The March 11 event is co-sponsored by the Committee for Economic Development, the Manufacturing Institute and the Partnership for America's Economic Success. It will be moderated by Harriet Dichter, National Director of First Five Years Fund.
