Dalton State Athletics Partners With FirstBank For 2020 And Beyond

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Dalton State Athletics and FirstBank have agreed to a partnership that will see Dalton State receive a significant contribution from the community-style bank. In return, FirstBank will be prominently displayed at all Dalton State athletic events.

 

Dalton State will receive:

·         A significant contribution toward athletic scholarships

·         Funds for an End of Year banquet where FirstBank will be the title sponsor

·         Financial training classes for student-athletes

·         One internship for a qualified Dalton State student

 

FirstBank opened its first branch in Chattanooga in 2008 and bought the former Northwest Georgia Bank in 2015.

In 2019, they acquired 14 Atlantic Capital Bank branches in Knoxville and Chattanooga, which included the Dalton locations.

 

“The Roadrunner statement of proud past, promising future correlates equally with the College and FirstBank,” said Kevin Brunson, FirstBank Dalton Market president. “It’s important to us to invest in our community. We’re excited about this partnership and hope we can continue with more.”

 

Dalton State Athletic Director Jon Jaudon said, “The College and FirstBank align perfectly with our commitment and accessibility to our community. The agreement goes far past just athletics with potential added benefits to the College.”
