Galion Building and Loan donate calculators to 6th graders in Galion
Galleon – Galleon Building and Loan Bank continued its support for education in the Galleon community by donating calculators to Galleon Prep School on December 7. This is the 30th year that the bank has made the donation to sixth graders.
The Board of Directors, along with Bank President Don Barr, chose to partner with Galleon Middle School in 1992. The goal was to make a positive impact on every student’s education at GMS.
Students received a Texas Instruments TI-30X IIS calculator, the official calculator for Ohio’s graduation test.
Calculators were handed out to students in a brief presentation at GMS. Each calculator is engraved with the student’s name and affixed to a label that includes the name of the bank and a statement of the bank’s interest in the education of our youth.
Galion Building and Loan Bank has distributed 6,180 calculators to Galion students since 1992.
In addition to the annual donation of calculators, Galion Building and Loan Bank also gives an annual presentation to all first graders at Galion on “Educate Children to Save the Day.” Students receive a Billy Buck and learn the importance of saving money during the presentation. The Bank also supported the Junior Achievement Program in Galleon City schools by sending volunteers to classrooms to teach children about business.
