CLEARFIELD More than 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 recently announced the creation of a scholarship open to students attending LHU Clearfield.
The Clearfield Educational Foundation received a $25,000 contribution commitment and those funds will create the CNB Bank scholarship. The funds will be delivered to the Clearfield Educational Foundation in two installments of $12,500 over two years.
“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,” said Joseph B. Bower Jr., president and chief executive officer of CNB.
“The education, [which] these students receive, benefits 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.”
