Northern Bank Charitable Foundation is pleased to award the James E. McGarry Jr. Scholarship
The Northern Bank & Trust Charitable Foundation awarded a $5,000 scholarship to Whitney Nash. This scholarship, established in 2014, honors the late “Jim” McGarry of Woburn for his 50 years of service to Northern Bank. It also pays tribute to his lifelong affinity for the fire and police departments in his city.
The $5,000.00 scholarship was open to graduating high school seniors with a parent or natural guardian who is an active firefighter or police officer in one of the communities directly served by the Bank. Whitney Nash is the daughter of Peter and Sandra Nash. Peter Nash is a volunteer firefighter and EMT for Carlisle, MA. Whitney is a 2017 graduate of Concord Carlisle High School where she was a member of the National Honor Society, the Weather Club, and a member and captain of the Varsity Nordic Ski team. In addition to her strong academic achievements and school involvement, she volunteered over 250 community service hours.
Since our founding in 1960, Northern Bank has maintained the firm belief that a strong bank, invested in the towns we serve, financially strengthens local communities. In addition to the many hours our team members dedicate to organizations in our communities, Northern invests through the Northern Bank Charitable Foundation. Created in 2012, the Northern Bank Charitable Foundation provides financial support to non-profits and other community organizations that promote educational opportunities, youth, and social services or community development. In 2016, the Northern Bank Charitable Foundation provided contributions ranging from $250 to $50,000 to more than 30 local organizations.
