FNBA Donates $75,000 to Continue ASAA Title Sponsorship
Commits to 30th year of support
First National Bank Alaska presents a $75,000 check to ASAA.
First National Bank Alaska continued its title sponsorship of the Alaska School Activities Association (ASAA) with a $75,000 donation for the 2018-19 school year. The bank also committed to another $75,000 for the 2019-20 school year, marking 30 years of support for the organization.
ASAA’s mission is “directing, developing and supporting Alaska’s high school interscholastic sports, academic and fine arts activities” in grades 9-12 across the state. The organization is responsible for sanctioning 36 activities ranging from fall, winter and spring sports, to music, art, drama, debate, language and student government.
“There’s no doubt that some of Alaska’s future leaders were among the more than 27,000 students who participated in ASAA activities last year,” said First National Executive Vice President Cheri Gillian. “The lessons they learn now about the power of working together toward a common goal will be invaluable as they guide Alaska. And it’s one reason we’ve supported ASAA these many years.”
