STAMFORD — Patriot Bank President Richard Muskus Jr., and Judith Corprew, Patriot’s chief compliance and risk officer, are joining two area higher-education boards.

Muskus, a Greenwich resident, is joining the Board of Trustees for the Harrison, N.Y.-based Purchase College Foundation. Corprew, of Norwalk, is joining the board of the Bridgeport-based Housatonic Community College Foundation.

Among related moves, Stamford-based Patriot launched in 2017 a financial-literacy program across Westchester, Fairfield and New Haven Counties. The bank held about 100 public forums to help veterans and clients at community-service organizations and high school and college students strengthen their financial decisions.

Patriot is headquartered at 900 Bedford St., with branches at 999 Bedford St., as well as in Darien, Fairfield, Greenwich, Milford, Norwalk, Orange, Westport and Scarsdale, N.Y.
