Bank of New Hampshire Supports Monarch School of New England as Presenting Sponsor

Laconia, New Hampshire – June 21, 2021 – Bank of New Hampshire is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the Monarch School of New England’s 2021-2022 school year. This sponsorship will allow MSNE to continue to provide academic, therapeutic, functional life skills and vocational instructions to students with severe disabilities. Rooted in the belief that each child deserves an environment in which they can flourish, the Monarch School of New England designs programs based on the individual needs and capabilities of each student. Students at MSNE are seen for their abilities – not for their disabilities – for their capacity to learn and to grow.

"At the Monarch School of New England, we're truly grateful for our community business partners,” said Diane Bessey, Executive Director for the Monarch School of New England. “Bank of New Hampshire has been there to support our work - providing unlimited possibilities for students with special needs - throughout the challenges of this past year. This generous donation will help provide a strong foundation for our school as we prepare to safely welcome our students back to full in-person instruction, and allow us to advance important new initiatives for our school community, such as our Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum."

“The staff and the programs at the Monarch School of New England allow every student the opportunity to explore possibilities, not limitations,” said Mary Henderson, Vice President, Rochester Banking Office Manager for Bank of New Hampshire. “MSNE provides life-changing opportunities for students, and it is such a gift for Bank of New Hampshire to be able support these efforts at the school.”

Bank of New Hampshire is proud of this partnership as we aspire to remain an independent mutual financial institution, delivering innovative solutions and exceptional service, while assisting our employees, customers and communities to build brighter futures.
