First National Bank Honored By Thiel College for Commitment to Community

April 10, 2012


GREENVILLE, PA—Each year, hundreds of local elementary school students attend a workshop at Thiel College during the college’s annual Earth Week celebrations where they participate in hands-on activities to learn more about the Earth. This important educational event would not be available to the community without the support of local institutions like First National Bank.

“We take pride in offering important learning opportunities like Earth Week to our community, and thanks to the dedicated support of community partners including First National Bank, Thiel faculty, staff and students are able to offer fun, educational opportunities to local students free of charge,” said Dr. Troy D. VanAken, president of Thiel College. “It’s another aspect of the Greenville area that makes it a great place to live and learn.”

Vincent J. Delie, Jr., CEO of First National Bank and President and CEO of the Bank’s holding company, F.N.B. Corporation, commented on the long-standing relationship between First National Bank and Thiel College. “First National Bank was founded in Greenville in 1864, and our headquarters were later established in Hermitage. We have a rich history and commitment to this area. As a bank, we are dedicated to supporting our local communities and to making educational opportunities like today’s Earth Day possible.”

In appreciation for First National Bank’s support of events like Earth Week, President VanAken presented a plaque to Jeffrey Wallace, vice president for commercial lending for First National Bank, at the children’s workshop on April 10 in Thiel’s Rissell-Schreyer Dome during the 2012 Earth Week celebration.
