Ivy Tech Community College - North Salem State Bank Scholarship Endowment


Year Founded

North Salem State Bank

Purpose of Fund
The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage students with financial need to pursue their educational goals at the Greencastle Campus of Ivy Tech Community College.

History of Fund
In 2007, the Putnam County Community Foundation committed $375,000 to the Ivy Tech Greencastle campus project in the form of an unrestricted endowment. A portion of the endowment provides matching funds to generous donors, like NSSB, who provide gifts toward this initiative.

Ivy Tech’s new 30,000 square foot Center for Workforce and Economic Development is located on approximately 30 acres of land in Rokicki Park at the intersection of Veterans Memorial Highway and Zinc Mill Road. This facility is a crucial step in providing Putnam County and the surrounding area the education and training that is required to produce a well-educated and well-trained workforce as the demand for highly skilled workers continues to increase. The center offers programs and services that are relevant to the existing workforce as well as offer courses and programs that transfer to four-year colleges and universities.

Brian Pershing, NSSB board member and local business owner, believes, “this facility will provide educational opportunities to many individuals that might not otherwise have access to post-secondary education. North Salem State Bank, in conjunction with the Ivy Tech and the Community Foundation, is excited to be a part of such a community asset.”
