The Darke Economic Foundation, which provides Darke County teachers training in economic education and personal financial responsibility, recently received a donation from Second National Bank. SNB, a division of The Park National Bank with nine locations located throughout Darke and Mercer counties, continues its long tradition of supporting the educational needs of Darke County teachers and students.
Steve Badgett, executive vice president of Second National Bank, presented a check to Dave Keiser, president of Darke Economic Foundation, and to Joel Sink, DEF program director. Since its inception in 1977, The DEF has trained nearly 1000 teachers and impacted thousands of Darke County students through training partnership with the Center for Economic Education, Raj Soin College of Business, and Wright State University. – from “Early Bird” Greenville, Ohio.
