mark feted in style
Patricia Sullivan, of Williamsport, recently celebrated her 50th anniversary of employment with M&T Bank. Since starting with the bank in 1959, she has served in a number of roles including bookkeeper, proof machine reader, teller, senior audit officer, and now acts as part-time receptionist at the local M & T administrative offices.
Sullivan was born in Mishawaka, Ind., but her family moved to northcentral Pennsylvania, where she graduated from Williamsport Area High School.
A reception was held in honor of Sullivan's accomplishments in Williamsport. The bank transported Sullivan to the event in style, picking her up in a limo, which also drove her home after the event.
A representative from Mayor Gabriel J. Campana's office presented Sullivan with a mayoral proclamation declaring June 24, 2011 as Patricia Sullivan Day in the city of Williamsport. She also received a certificate of recognition from the office of state Sen. E. Eugene Yaw, R-Loyalsock Township, a congratulatory letter from M&T Bank's Chairman and CEO Robert Wilmers, as well as a certificate from the M&T Bank's local Advisory Council. The letter and certificate from M&T Bank was presented to Sullivan by Scott Clark, M&T's retail market manager for the region.
