We have always been a strong supporter of educational programs that positively impact our youth in our communities. It is with great pleasure that we announce a major gift of $130,000 to the Sanford Schools Legacy Foundation (SSLF) to sponsor the new High School’s main competition gym and outside stadium scoreboard.
The check was presented to Superintendent of Schools, David Theoharides, by SIS Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau. To date, the SSLF has raised more than $950,000 towards its $2 million capital campaign for infrastructure and equipment costs at the new High School, Regional Technical Center, Athletic Facilities and Performing Arts Center.
“SIS Bank is pleased to support this very important project,” states Boudreau. “This new, state-of-the-art facility will serve the on-going educational needs of the Sanford community and the surrounding region today and well into the future.”
“From the very beginning of this project, SIS has been a present and active partner in our efforts to support the new school,” adds President of SSLF Allen Lampert. “In addition to the financial support, SIS is working with the school department to create a comprehensive financial literacy program to help our students become more productive citizens.”
“We are happy to name the new gymnasium at Sanford High School as the ‘SIS Bank Competition Gymnasium,’” says Theoharides. “We thank and commend SIS Bank’s commitment and generous support of our educational programs. Our students and community are extremely fortunate to have SIS as a strong supporter of education.”
