BARNETT CONTRIBUTES TO ACADEMIC RECOGNITION PROGRAM

 BARNETT CONTRIBUTES TO ACADEMIC RECOGNITION PROGRAM
 JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Barnett Bank is


contributing $20,000 to the PRIDE Program after the state withdrew funding due to budget restrictions.
 PRIDE, the Program to Recognize Initiative and Distinction in Education, recognizes academic excellence in Florida's high schools and rewards students for their achievements. Each year, PRIDE Certificates of Excellence are awarded to students in one or more subjects. To be eligible for a Certificate of Excellence, students must have a 3.5 or higher grade-point average and have scored at the 90th percentile or higher on the ACT test.
 From these students, district winners are identified who compete in regional written examinations in the areas of math, science, writing and social studies. Twenty regional finalists each receive a $1,000 scholarship award and compete at the state level.
 Barnett's contribution will sponsor 20 scholarship awards for the regional competitions during the 1992-93 Program year.
 With $32.4 billion in assets and 596 offices in Florida and Georgia, Barnett is the leading financial institution in Florida and the 18th- largest in the United States. The company's stock (BBI) is listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
