Pentucket Bank Makes Gift to Northern Essex Community College

Pentucket Bank Chief Executive Officer Scott Cote presents Northern Essex Community College President Lane Glenn with a donation. NECC’s Lecture Hall A will soon carry the Pentucket Bank name.

Northern Essex Community College’s recently renovated Lecture Hall A will soon bear the name of Pentucket Bank thanks to a $50,000 gift by the Pentucket Bank Charitable Foundation.

“We are deeply honored and grateful to have community partners like Pentucket Bank who are committed to ensuring the success of our students,” said Jean Poth, Vice President of NECC’s institutional advancement and executive director of the NECC Foundation.

“We are happy to support Northern Essex, which is so critical to enhancing the education and economic well-being of the Merrimack Valley and Southern New Hampshire,” said Scott Cote, Chief Executive Officer of Pentucket Bank.

Lecture Hall A, which is located in the center of the Spurk Building on the Haverhill campus, is a two-story lecture hall with a seating capacity of 158 plus an additional five spaces for wheelchairs.

Pentucket’s recent gift is another example of Pentucket Bank’s support of Northern Essex said Poth. She noted the Pentucket Bank endowed scholarship as well as its sponsorship for NECC’s past and upcoming September Signature Fundraising Event.

“We can always count on Pentucket Bank to support Northern Essex, its mission, and its students,” Poth said. “Our Lecture Hall A is a valuable center of learning. It is used by both students and community members.”
