Bradford National Bank Supports Connecting All Comets Program
The Bradford National Bank board of directors has signed on as the Naming Donor for the Connecting all Comets program being proposed for Greenville High School. The bank has agreed to donate $250,000 to the high school to help fund the program renovations.
Connecting All Comets is a part of a phased approach to the facility improvement process, that focuses on upgrading existing Comets sports facilities. The Board of Education has approved for the design of artificial turf on the football and baseball fields. Other projects being considered include lights on the baseball and softball fields, new tennis courts, an auxiliary gym, and new weight room/athletic training facilities.
Greenville Comets Athletic Director Joe Alstat, who is spearheading the Connecting All Comets campaign, said, “We are floored by the level of commitment being shown by Bradford National Bank towards our Connecting All Comets campaign. As a real community bank, Bradford National Bank knows the importance of investing in our community and this particular investment will impact tens of thousands of current and future Bond County residents. Their constant support of all things Comets has been overwhelming and very much appreciated!”
Unit #2 Superintendent Wes Olson said, “Bond County CUSD recognized extracurriculars and athletics as an integral part of the education process. The district is grateful for the continued support Bradford National Bank provides for our schools, our students, and our communities.”
Founded in 1867, the bank has a long history of supporting academics, arts, and athletics at Greenville High School and for over 20 years have awarded scholarships to graduating seniors.
Bradford National Bank president Michael Ennen said, “We are excited to make this investment and to be a significant part of the Connecting All Comets program. We support and endorse the vision of Greenville High School to upgrade the athletic facilities which we believe will become a community asset benefiting the entire town.” He added, “We encourage individuals, organizations, and other businesses to come on board and support this worthwhile program.”
In addition to Comet athletics, Bradford National Bank supports the arts and academic programs at GHS and awards two $1,000 scholarships annually to high school seniors.
