“At Cornèr Bank, we remain committed to contributing to our community and doing our part to improve the lives of young people,” shared Christine Russell, Chief Executive Officer for Cornèr Bank. 

The Bank recently made a donation to The PACE School (Providing Access to Continuing Education). According to the school’s website, it is “a special program for teenage mothers unable to complete school due to their pregnancy… PACE values youth as assets in our country, and believes in their capacity to make positive choices when they are informed, educated and empowered by supportive families, communities and governments.” The School recently celebrated 50 years of educating and supporting young women. 

During the month of March, Mrs. Russell led her team in recognizing Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day. “As a Bank, we consistently seek out ways to both support and celebrate woman and girls and the issues the affect them. In The Bahamas, teen pregnancy is just one of the social concerns that affects our community. We applaud the work that is being done at PACE to assist young mothers in not just continuing their education but also in supporting their overall growth and wellness.”
