You and your business can too!
Ally your business with public education in East Lansing. Become a key part of the effort to supplement declining tax funding with private dollars. You are already a leader in business, now become a leader in local education.
The campaign is led by a group of Founding Partners, with Summit Community Bank’s John Abbot as chairman.
"As a locally owned and managed community bank, we take our community involvement seriously," commented Summit Community Bank President and CEO John W. Abbott. "We believe it's important to give back to the community that supports us. The East Lansing Educational Foundation and the East Lansing Public Schools are truly a solid part of this community." One annual contribution to the campaign supports all district schools.
“Sitting in this classroom took me back many years and I am excited to be making a direct impact on our students,” said Summit Community Bank’s President and CEO John Abbott (seated in red tie).
John is joined by other generous Business Partners. Wouldn’t you like these Whitehill students to be cheering for you? Become a Business Partner!
