“The Touchdown for Teachers program, in its fifth consecutive year, has proven to be one of our most rewarding programs,” said Bruce Popko, Bills Senior VP of Business Development. “Teachers are the backbone of our educational system, and to be able to honor their efforts coincides with the focus that both M&T Bank and the Bills have in recognizing the outstanding members of our community.”

“Teachers are extremely important role models for our children, and provide them with guidance and opportunity,” said Bills running back Fred Jackson. “I wouldn’t be where I am today without support from the teachers and mentors that I had growing up.”

“Teachers play pivotal role in the development of our children each and every day, and they deserve to be recognized and honored for their hard work and dedication,” said Darren King, Executive Vice President of Retail Banking for M&T Bank. “We hope students and parents in the participating counties will all take a moment to thank and appreciate those teachers working hard to inspire learning.”
