“Our strategy is to be a supporter of broad interests and stay engaged with the college year round.”

“If we want our community to be strong then there are certain fundamental organizations we need to support.  Education is critical in today’s world and HCC is the pre-eminent educational institution in our community,” says Trevor Garner, M&T Bank’s Regional Banking Manager.

M&T Bank has been supporting HCC students since the early 1980’s; the bank has contributed more than $175k to the HCC Educational Foundation and is recognized as a member of the President’s Circle. Garner also serves on the HCC Educational Foundation Board of Directors, “I want to make sure that any serious student who wants to attend higher education has options at HCC.  The power of the HCC Educational Foundation is that it provides both financial assistance and access,” he remarks.

M&T Bank chose to designate a portion of their annual contribution to the Men’s Lacrosse program. Student athletes often face financial constraints as they juggle the costs of school, books, and equipment. M&T Bank has also become title sponsor for Vino Scholastico, the college’s premier wine tasting event, and also supports the HCC Challenge Race and Silas Craft Collegians fundraiser.    

Garner explains how the bank’s charitable giving philosophy is reflected in how they stay connected with HCC. “Our strategy is to be a supporter of broad interests and stay engaged with the college year round.”  Talking specifically about the bank’s sponsorship of events, Garner remarks, “When you go to an HCC event you really feel the magnitude of what is happening at the college.  We really like the different types of events that HCC has as they allow us to match our employees based on their interests.”  

When talking about the role education played in his life, Garner reflects on returning to school after 12 years as a working professional, “As a returning student later in my career I was more focused and knew how I could apply my education to what I wanted to do professionally.  I was a better student because I knew what I wanted to achieve.  I understand the role HCC plays for working professionals who need to go back to school to better themselves.”

In today’s world, education is expensive. Thankfully, there are ways to help. Dawn Lowe, from HCC’s financial aid office, met with others on Laurel TV to discuss various ways to pay for college, including scholarships, grants, and loans.
