Press release

 


First National Bank was awarded the Regents Business Partnership Excellence Award on behalf of Carl Albert State College on Tuesday, March 12, at the annual luncheon hosted by the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, Okla.
FNB joined twenty-six other businesses and higher education partnerships throughout the state as they were recognized as innovative collaborations that further the education of Oklahoma’s workforce.

 

“FNB has served as a financial institution in CASC’s residential housing expansions,” said President Jay Falkner, “and has continually contributed gifts to the foundation. FNB is committed to community service and actively supports CASC scholarships and our alumni network. We are proud to recognize the leadership of FNB for their steadfast support of CASC and look forward to continuing this partnership for years to come.”


The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education’s Regents Business Partnership Excellence Award is designed to highlight successful partnerships between higher education institutions and businesses and to further cultivate the higher learning environment through State Regents’ Economic Development Grants.

 

Institutions involved in these partnerships provide $500 for tuition waivers to employees of the partnering businesses; internships that enable current students to work at the partnering businesses; faculty externships with the partnering businesses; and/or enhancement of the partnerships with additional equipment, materials or supplies. The State Regents provide a $500 match to the waivers.

 

“To solve the workforce development challenges facing Oklahoma, our colleges and universities continue to work collaboratively with leaders in the private, public and nonprofit sectors,” said Chancellor Glen D. Johnson. “These partnerships between business and industry and our state system institutions ensure that we continue building the skilled workforce needed for Oklahoma to be globally competitive.”
