News Community First Citizens gives to New Century Scholars

Jan Revis, right, financial services officer at First Citizens Bank, presents a $500 check from the bank to Sonja Haynes, left, Southwestern Community College executive director of business and institutional development, for the college’s New Century Scholars program.

New Century Scholars is a locally-funded initiative that assists local students with a college education.

Selecting students at the end of their 6th grade year, the NCS program improves academic readiness, bolsters student persistence toward high school graduation and increases the college-going rate, according to Haynes.

“We appreciate First Citizens helping our students reach these goals,” said Haynes, who can be contacted at (828)339-4218.
