Cornerstone Bank has donated $3,000 to the Nativity School of Worcester, an independent, Jesuit middle school providing all-scholarship education to underserved boys of all faiths. The funds will be used to help low- and moderate-income families of current students as well as students who have graduated, through the school’s Graduate Support Program.
“Not only does the Nativity School foster the growth and learning of students currently enrolled with them, but they ensure that their graduates are prepared for the upcoming year in high school or college,” said Cornerstone Bank CEO Todd Tallman. “The school’s work inspires responsibility, a love of service and a dedication to learning that many of these students may have never experienced otherwise. Cornerstone Bank is happy to make this donation, which has helped to fund the Nativity School’s all-important summer program.”
The Nativity School of Worcester’s summer program runs for three weeks during the summer and focuses on core academics, including language arts and math, as well as community services. Students and faculty spend every afternoon volunteering at local organizations to empower them to recognize the ways they can improve their community. The Graduate Support Team coordinates with alumni to provide school supplies to high school and college-aged graduates of the Nativity School, helping them to continue their education.
“We are proud to play a small part in creating a long-lasting love of learning for these students,” continued Tallman. “We understand how important quality education is for all, and we are honored to assist in everything the Nativity School of Worcester is doing for its students and alumni.”
