 "We are proud to honor Roger through our pledge," McColl said. "In his 14 years as a member of the NationsBank Corporate Board of Directors, he has seen how education has influenced our company and the communities we serve. At NationsBank we believe education is the single greatest tool in building a more stable, affluent workforce. That belief is part of a simple philosophy that shapes the way we run our company. As our communities grow and prosper, so will NationsBank."
