Centennial Bank donation to support UACCB Food Pantry

Posted Date - 11/18/20

These are most certainly different times — times when an act of genuine kindness can extend well beyond the moment. Local organizations are working to find ways to maximize their expressions of kindness. That is exactly what happened when Kevin Rose, market president, and Adam Curtwright, assistant vice president, from Centennial Bank presented a $1,500 check to support the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville’s Student Food Pantry. 


The gift was made through the Community Reinvestment Act program, a program that represents Centennial Bank’s desire to support and invest in the communities that the bank’s employees call home.

“With the hardships people have endured during the pandemic in terms of employment and family health, Centennial Bank wanted students at UACCB to be able to focus on school, health and life, and not worry so much about not being able to provide a meal for themselves or their family,” Rose said.

Kim Whitten, UACCB director of advancement, recently gave a presentation to the UACCB Foundation Board, of which Rose is a member, regarding the drive through services that the UACCB Student Food Pantry had provided for students since March. Whitten discussed the bi-monthly distribution to students and the gratitude the students expressed for the “extra” support. Rose also expressed his appreciation for the efforts of UACCB’s personnel to ensure students’ needs are met both inside and outside of the classroom.

“The work that the UACCB faculty and administration does with their foodbank is really important, and Centennial wanted to reinvest in this worthy cause in our community,” he stated.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced Tuesday that he will not renew the statewide mask mandate that expires at midnight tonight; however, school districts, private businesses, and medical facilities may still require patrons to wear masks as a preventative measure against the spread of COVID-19 under the revised guidelines. The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville will maintain mask use and social distancing protocols on campus through the end of the spring semester. During its meeting on Friday, March 19, 2021, the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee discussed the topic of continuing the mask mandate on campus after the statewide mandate expires March 31. Campus constituents, including representatives from the faculty senate, staff senate, Student Government Association and the cabinet were involved in the discussion. It was agreed that continuing to follow mask use and social distancing protocols was in the best interest of the campus community.

 

On Friday, March 26, 2021, the campus reported its fifth straight week of having zero positive self-reported cases of COVID-19 associated with the campus. Our students, faculty, and staff have shown outstanding diligence in wearing face coverings and social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The campus community is asked to continue in its diligence to keep members of campus safe and healthy, not only for the benefit of campus but our community as well.
