CLEARFIELD – Over 25 years ago, the Clearfield Educational Foundation and the Clearfield Area Business Community invested in a concept that is today the Clearfield Campus of Lock Haven University.
What started as an educational center, housed in a former elementary school, has grown to a branch campus consisting of two academic buildings and a student apartment facility.
To help continue the growth of the campus and foster the education of students pursuing a business degree, CNB Bank created a scholarship in 2015 open to students attending LHU Clearfield.
The Clearfield Educational Foundation recently received the second installment of the $25,000 total contribution commitment and those funds will continue the CNB Bank scholarship.
“LHU Clearfield Campus has successfully attracted Clearfield area residents as well as students from other regions due to their high quality, low cost, educational offerings,” Joseph B. Bower Jr., president and chief executive officer of CNB said.
“The education, these students receive benefit our entire region by preparing them for the workforce and we’re thrilled to be able to help students attain this higher level of education through the CNB scholarship.”
