In 2009, 1st Mariner Bank became an active partner with the United States Army in the Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program. The PaYS Program is designed to assist Soldiers in securing their future once their service to our country is complete. The PaYS Soldier agrees to fulfill their Army obligation, and then benefits from a “foot in the door” with a partnership company, like 1st Mariner Bank. It’s a “win-win” for everyone involved, as we benefit from having job candidates with a positive work ethic as demonstrated by their successful Army service.
1st Mariner Bank recently utilized the PaYS Program in the recruitment of Ciara Brown, a Teller at our Cockeysville branch. Ciara joined the Army Reserve in October 2011 as a Chemical Operations Specialist (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear). She completed Basic Combat Training in Fort Jackson, South Carolina, and then attended Chemical School at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. She is currently stationed at a Civil Affairs Unit, or Airborne Unit, in Riverdale, Maryland. Ciara says, “There’s a lot to do while in the service, and I’m looking forward to a rewarding career, both in the Army Reserve and at 1st Mariner Bank.”
Welcome aboard Ciara!
