PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Plymouth State University announced that Bank of New Hampshire has signed-on as the named sponsor of the institution's field house, located in the ALLWell North building. Members of the PSU community, including 50 members of the Panthers athletic teams, and Bank of New Hampshire representatives gathered at the facility to officially launch the partnership with a brief ceremony.
"We are enormously grateful to Bank of New Hampshire for this generous gift," said Paula Lee Hobson, vice president for advancement, Plymouth State University. "This marks Plymouth State's largest corporate gift, and we are honored to partner with an institution that is so deeply committed to community service, civic leadership and strengthening our state by supporting organizations that share its mission."

"Our transformation to an integrated clusters model is not only expanding real-world educational opportunities for our students, but expanding Plymouth State's role in the greater community," said Donald L. Birx, president, Plymouth State Univeristy. "The field house plays an integral role in campus life, of course, but it is also a space where organizations and businesses can gather to network, learn, create and grow. With Bank of New Hampshire's legacy of serving and enriching communities statewide, it is fitting for the field house to bear the Bank of New Hampshire name."
