PITTSBURGH, Sept. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB) announced it has increased its total commitment to The Pittsburgh Promise to $1 million. A named scholarship will be established for FNB, and five graduating Pittsburgh Public Schools seniors will be selected annually and named as the "F.N.B. Corporation Scholars of The Pittsburgh Promise." The FNB Scholars will have the opportunity to build mentoring and professional relationships with company leaders as they pursue their post-secondary degrees.
Along with officials from The Pittsburgh Promise and Pittsburgh Public Schools, FNB presented the gift at The Pittsburgh Promise's Preferred College Partners Opportunity Fair, where hundreds of students met with representatives from trade, 2-year and 4-year post-secondary schools. The Preferred College Partners are post-secondary institutions that make specific commitments of grants and other support to ensure the success of Promise scholars. Admissions officers representing these 41 post-secondary campuses actively recruited students, offered on-site admission and provided on-the-spot scholarships.
"Pittsburgh's economic success depends on our ability to prepare the next generation of our local workforce," said Vincent J. Delie, Jr., Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of F.N.B. Corporation and its banking subsidiary, First National Bank. "Through FNB's partnership with The Pittsburgh Promise, we can expand opportunities for students to achieve their academic aspirations, thrive in their careers and contribute to our region's lasting prosperity."
FNB's contribution to The Pittsburgh Promise is another example of the Company's long-standing commitment to promote economic equality and fulfill its mission to improve the quality of life in its communities. In Pittsburgh, the gift is complemented by FNB's significant investment in the Lower Hill District, including its sponsorship of the First Source Center for employment and focus on inclusion in the construction of its new headquarters, FNB Financial Center. The project is on track to achieve its substantial goals for participation by minority-owned (30 percent) and women-owned (15 percent) contracting firms, ensuring the greater community can participate in the development's benefits.
Pittsburgh Promise Executive Director Saleem Ghubril commented, "We are so grateful to have FNB as our newest $1 million partner. They are a long-time supporter of our mission and our students. Their generous investment demonstrates a deep commitment to our city's young people, the diversity and strength of our workforce and the vitality of our region."
