Citibank and The School District of Palm Beach County Unite to Form Business-Educational Partnerships
Citibank recently donated $5,000.00 to the School District through a business-educational partnership that involves the Human Resources, Public Affairs, and K-12 Curriculum Departments.
The much needed funds will benefit programs and activities such as SECME Olympiads, Secondary Mathematics Training, District Retirement Event , Employee of Excellence Program, and Volunteer and Business Partners Recognition.
Citibank is also supporting the Literacy Program at Lake Worth Community High School by sponsoring a book drive and supplying notepads, pens, pencils, and other materials to aid students in achieving at the highest level.
“We are only as strong as the communities we serve and Citibank is deeply committed to the community in Palm Beach,” said Kathryn Chase, Eastern Region President, Citibank. “Our colleagues are not just your neighbors – they are PTA volunteers and Mothers and Fathers who know the foundation of their child’s future begins in a classroom. We are happy to support the district staff and teachers to better the education experience for the students in Palm beach County. We are all in this together.”
“The resources provided by businesses like Citibank help strengthen academic instruction and enrich the educational objectives of schools,” said Jimmy Peterkin, District Business Partnership Coordinator. “One of the greatest challenges school districts face today is the reductions in public education funding. By embracing business-educational partnerships, school districts are able to offer students a more meaningful education,” he said.
