Financial Institution Contributes To Programming For Second Year

PORTSMOUTH, N.H.– Leadership Seacoast, a non-profit organization fostering informed and engaged leaders, announced Kennebunk Savings Bank has been named a leadership sponsor after receiving a generous $1,000 donation from the financial institution. The sponsorship will provide on-going support for the 2012 program year that is currently underway.

Kennebunk Savings Bank has built its reputation on its decades of excellent service and community involvement. Originally founded in 1871 in Kennebunk, Maine, the company has expanded to service 14 locations including a newly opened Portsmouth, New Hampshire branch. “As neighbors in the greater seacoast region, we are humbled to be part of Kennebunk Savings Community Investment Program,”  said Jennifer Wheeler, Executive Director of Leadership Seacoast.

Leadership Seacoast provides experiential learning, classroom discussion and consensus building– graduates of the program leave with an expanded awareness of effective leadership practices, a network of leaders who can support each other in building a stronger community, and a demonstration of the interconnectedness of the topics covered during the program year.

Thanks to financial support from community members and corporations like Kennebunk Savings Bank, Leadership Seacoast is able to provide meaningful experiences for every student, offer scholarships for participants, create additional opportunities for alumni, and secure the best venues and speakers.
