First Bank of Berne made a donation earlier this year to the Adams County Community Foundation in the amount of $1,000 to be used for two South Adams Scholarships. The ACCF manages, organizes and maintains oversight of over 250 funds and each year more than 250 students are awarded scholarships. Tax-deductible advantages are extended to the donors while financial benefits are given to students in the form of scholarships, and grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations that provide services to Adams County residents.
Rick Gorrell from First Bank of Berne attended the recent event and presented two scholarship awards on behalf of the bank. Scholarship recipients from South Adams were Julia Grabau and Jake Hreha. First Bank of Berne would like to congratulate all scholarship award recipients.
