ELKO – Communities In Schools of Northeastern Nevada recently received a donation from Nevada State Bank in support of its integrated student support services at Flag View Intermediate School.

The $20,000 donation will allow CIS of Northeastern Nevada to provide integrated student support services to 80 case-managed students at the middle school during the 2017-’18 school year. Services provided by CIS of Northeastern Nevada are dictated by the needs of each student, and range from tutoring, providing food and school supplies, to simply acting as a caring adult.

“Nevada State Bank is so proud to support CIS of Northeastern Nevada and their partnership with our area schools, as they’re able to provide critical food, clothing, school supplies and services to the youth in our community.” said Amber Fox, relationship manager/vice president at Nevada State Bank. “We encourage our community to help with donations and volunteer their time as well. “

CIS of Northeastern Nevada is one of three regional centers operated by CIS of Nevada in the state.
