Last year, the Skowhegan Savings Foundation also announced a $1 million dollar workforce development fund, dedicated to addressing workforce development needs in the Maine communities that the bank serves.

The bank welcomed 11 new corporators: Thomas Butler, vice president of skier services at Sugarloaf; Debra Chapman, realtor at eXp Realty; Kimberly Danforth, owner of Bishops Store; Robert Linkletter, owner of Maine Woods Pellet Company; John Lynch, owner of Lynch Landscaping; Dr. Kristen Mazoki, psychiatrist at Franklin Memorial Behavioral Health; Jonathan Moody, superintendent at MSAD 54; Robert Shibley, owner of Bob’s Cash Fuel; Tracie Travers, vice president of strategic partnerships of JMG; Suzanne Walsh, chief executive officer of KVCAP and Chad Whittemore, of Whittemore and Sons.
