Wells Fargo supports history education

Wells Fargo recently presented the Georgia Historical Society GHS with a $5,000 grant to support educational programming.

“We are so pleased to support this organization that does so much to preserve Georgia’ s history and enrich our culture in Savannah,” said Jenny Gentry, Wells Fargo Savannah market president.

GHS is an independent statewide institution founded in 1839 that collects, examines, and teaches Georgia history. The society houses the oldest and most distinguished collection of materials related exclusively to Georgia history in the nation and it is the oldest continuously operated historical society in the South.

“We are so grateful to Wells Fargo for their support of what we do,” said Sophia Sineath, education coordinator for GHS. “This grant will help us continue to provide new and relevant educational materials for Georgia teachers and students.”
