The staff at our Pickaway County Banking Center was thrilled this week to donate $25,000 to the Circleville City Schools for a facilities expansion of their campus softball complex. Since becoming a part of the Pickaway County community in 2014, bank leaders have sought meaningful and lasting ways to contribute to the betterment of Circleville and Pickaway County. Investing in this sports complex will have a long lasting impact for scores of future student athletes in Circleville.
“We invest in the communities we serve,” said Branch Manager Jessica Calder. “That is one of our core values and something we live by each and every day as an organization and as individual employees. Schools are the foundation of our communities and therefore we know that an investment in Circleville City Schools is money well spent,” she said.
The funds will help with the completion of a new softball complex that will include four fields and a building to house concessions and bathrooms. It will be used by high school and middle school teams.
“Time and time again this community has stepped up to help us provide a high quality educational experience, in high quality facilities, for our greatest asset, our students,” said School Superintendent Jonathan Davis. “The Pickaway County Banking Center’s substantial donation is an endearing continuation of such community commitment to our students and I cannot thank them enough for their investment in our Tigers,” Davis said.
The Pickaway County Banking Center is located at 120 S. Court St. in downtown Circleville and recently underwent renovations to beautify the bank’s façade.
