Sterling Bank Plc, a full fledge Nigerian commercial financial institution which against all odds from its incorporation in 1960, first licensed Nigerian merchant bank in 1969, to its listing on the floor of the Nigeria Stock Exchange as a public company in 1992 and its merger acquisition in 2006 complying to the apex bank consolidation directives, undoubtedly is a shining example amongst financial institutions in Nigeria as they continue to throw their weight and robust support to educational programmes that would benefit the younger generation.
