Bank gives significant donation for college revamp

Saco & Biddeford Savings CEO, Kevin Savage and Chairman of the board, Robert Wade, presented York County Community College President Dr. Barbara Finkelstein and York County Community College Foundation Chairman Kathy Baker with a gift of $100,000 in support of the school’s capital campaign for its new academic building.

“YCCC is an important part of our communities – helping to give educational opportunities to thousands of students in a wide variety of fields,” Savage said. “We have been a supporter since YCCC’s inception and continue to be a proud partner.”

The college has outgrown its 78,000-square-foot building that opened in 1995. The new building will provide instructional space through eight state-of-theart classrooms, independent and group study areas and a developmental mathematics and English lab. The building will house a 140-seat lecture/performance hall and attached flexible classroom/backstage area allowing the college to hold larger classes as well as host community events.
