Citizens & Northern Bank recently awarded four employees with the Teresa (Teri) L. Mitchell Scholarship. This scholarship is a legacy scholarship that keeps the spirit of Mitchell and her dedication to C&N alive by providing employees with paid attendance to the PA Bankers Association’s Women in Banking Conference. The recipients of this award were:
- Hannah F. Jackson, training facilitator in Wellsboro
- Lisa Milne, universal banker in Wysox
- Marcie Meyers, universal banker in Troy
- Vanessa Calaman, universal banker in Wysox
Also, in attendance were Brad Scovill, president and CEO, Kim Battin, corporate secretary, and Tracy Watkins, director of human resources.
The scholarship was started in memoriam of Mitchell, a dedicated C&N employee for 37 years, to award educational opportunities to C&N employees who display commitment to their ongoing professional development and a strong work ethic.
Mitchell held various positions over the course of her 37 years at C&N. Starting her career as a bookkeeper, she also worked as a teller in Wellsboro, and then moved to the Wire Transfer Department. As the technology and department changed over the years, Mitchell remained in what became the Funds Management Department and later became the funds management supervisor. In recent years, Mitchell worked in the Accounting Department and held the position of treasury and reconciliation accountant.
Mitchell expressed her appreciation for the educational opportunities that C&N provided her. She attended several conferences throughout her years at C&N, including the Conference for Women, NACHA’s Payments Conferences, and several technical seminars related to her field of expertise.
