MARIETTA, OHIO (October 4, 2018)– Peoples Bank recently established a new $60,000 scholarship fund through the Washington State Community College Foundation. The fund was created to help deserving students achieve their academic and career goals.
“At Peoples Bank, we know that education is key in increasing an individual’s likelihood of success,” said Shawn Taylor, Peoples Bank Vice President, Marietta Market Team Leader. “This scholarship fund will help enable WSCC students to achieve that success, and in turn, contribute to the success of our community.”
The Peoples Bank Scholarship will provide financial support to students in good academic standing, with a minimum 2.5 GPA, and demonstrate financial need.
