Seneca East recognizes Sutton Bank

ATTICA — Eric Gillet, CEO of Sutton Bank, and Rhonda Martin, Sutton Bank public relations specialist, accepted a plaque during Seneca East Board of Education’s meeting Tuesday evening on behalf of the bank. The plaque was to recognize the bank for donating more than $24,000 to fund a project at the school and for the bank’s support in the past.

“It’s always nice to be a part of something that has become such a success story,” Gillet said. “Over the years, there have been many successes in this school and a lot of successful people coming out of it.”

“Seneca East is a jewel in the county,” he added. “We are happy to be able to partner with the school and we thank you for this honor.”
