Posted: February 26, 2016

A gift of $50,000 from First Niagara Bank will help support five major initiatives at Gannon including modernization of the Nash Library, Golden Knight Athletics, The Annual Fund for Academic Excellence, the Gannon Business Ambassadors Program and Gannon's Erie Chamber Orchestra.

On hand for a check presentation during a recent Gannon basketball game were Lisa Slomski and Don Burdick, vice presidents of corporate banking, and Jennifer Schade, area manager and first vice president, who joined Gannon President Keith Taylor, Ph.D. for the ceremony. Schade is a proud Gannon alumna earning her bachelor's degree in 1998 and master's in 2002. She was also a member of the Lady Knight Softball team.
