CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — The Greater Chambersburg Chamber Foundation recently announced that F&M Trust has committed $5,000 for the 2019-2020 Leadership Franklin County Community Program.

The sponsorship will be used for transportation costs, classroom supplies and other expenses. This also enables the Greater Chambersburg Chamber Foundation to offer the course at a rate of $1,300 per student.

The 2019-2020 class of 18 students kicked off the program recently with a weekend retreat at Folium Inc.

“The LFC Community is thrilled to have F&M Trust as our program sponsor,” Virginia Harriger, executive director of the Greater Chambersburg Chamber Foundation, said in a news release. “F&M Trust has been a wonderful part of our community for decades and, like LFC Community, is dedicated to making Franklin County a better place to live and work. We appreciate their support and look forward to this partnership with them as our sponsor.”

The LFC Community program is a nine-month leadership training course designed to arm professionals with the leadership skills and community knowledge they need to give back to the community. Leadership Franklin County is an initiative of the Greater Chambersburg Chamber Foundation and has graduated more than 600 students since its founding in 1985.

“F&M Trust is proud to sponsor Leadership Franklin County (LFC), a program that inspires many to greater personal and professional achievements. We believe strongly in the mission of LFC and how it is shaping our future business leaders. In fact, we regularly enroll our employees in the program and have five individuals participating in the 2019-2020 class,” Timothy G. Henry, president and CEO of F&M Trust, said in the release. “This partnership embodies our commitment to building lasting relationships and giving back to the communities we serve.”
