First Federal donates to Huntington Catholic

Posted: Friday, January 10, 2020

First Federal Savings Bank has donated $10,000 to Huntington Catholic School (HCS) through the Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) of Northeast Indiana. The donation provides scholarships to families for students attending Huntington Catholic giving them access to a high quality education they may not have received otherwise.

Derek Boone, the principal of Huntington Catholic School, states, “This donation has such a tremendous impact on our school community due to the SGO scholarships HCS can offer to our families, making a private school education more affordable. We feel very blessed and fortunate to have received such a generous donation from First Federal Savings Bank!”

Michael Zahn, president and CEO of First Federal Savings Bank, commented, “We are pleased to have an opportunity to support scholarships at Huntington Catholic. The school provides a strong faith-based education for its students.”  Zahn continues, “We’ve had a long relationship with Huntington Catholic and understand its value and importance as an asset for our community.”
