Three Students Awarded Scholarships from Charles River Bank

Charles River Bank Senior Vice President of Customer Care and Relationship Development Ann Sherry is pleased to award annual scholarships from Charles River Bank to Luc Lafayette, Brian Culcasi and Ashley Paturzo. All three students are 2016 graduates of Medway High School. Scholarship recipients must demonstrate that they have successfully completed their first semester of college and are enrolled for second semester classes. Lafayette is studying Political Science at the University of Massachusetts in Boston. Culcasi is in his freshmen year at Florida Gulf Coast University where he is majoring in professional golf management. Paturzo attends the University of South Carolina and is majoring in retail management.
To be eligible for a scholarship, students must either participate as a student-teller in the School Bank Program at Medway High School where Charles River Bank operates a full-service educational branch, or be employed at any of Charles River Bank’s three branches.  Student-tellers at the Medway High School office earn school credit as tellers at the school branch.  They learn about banking operations, regulations, financial services and marketing.
“Luc, Brian and Ashley are extremely deserving of these scholarships. They were wonderful assets to the Student Banking Program and Luc also worked in our Main Office at Charles River Bank.  It’s exciting to see them succeed in college. I hope these scholarships will help each of them with their college expenses,” said Sherry.
Charles River Bank—with assets of $230 million—was founded in 1915, and continues to offer a wide range of individual and business banking services. The Bank's Main Office is located at 70 Main Street in Medway, and new state-of-the-art branches are located on the Bellingham/ Franklin town line on Route 140 and in Mendon at 1 Hastings Street, at the intersection of Rte. 16 and North Avenue. Charles River Bank also operates a branch in Medway High School that serves as an educational facility and full-service branch. In 2015, Charles River Bank contributed more than $40,000 to community non-profit organizations.
