bankHometown recently awarded $28,000 in scholarships to 14 local students through the Quinebaug Valley Community College (QVCC) Foundation, whose mission is to raise funds so all residents of northeastern Connecticut are provided the opportunity to attend school regardless of income. This Foundation helps support educational excellence, technological advancement, and professional development at the college, and serves as the regional advisory council.

“What an amazing opportunity to recognize these deserving students,” said Mahlert. “bankHometown is thrilled to provide these students with financial support on their journey to unlocking their potential.”
