Seniors Selected for Texas Bank and Trust
Student Board of Directors
[LONGVIEW, Tex.] —Texas Bank and Trust is pleased to announce the selection of first three seniors from Christian Heritage Classical High School to serve on its 2018-2019 Student Board of Directors.
The TB&T Student Board is a prestigious program recognizing outstanding high school seniors in the community. This marks the first year for students from CHCS to participate in the program.
Seniors Mason Russell Dunnahoo, Jilian Gates, and Robert Walker will join with 62 other seniors from St. Mary’s Catholic, Trinity School of Texas, Longview, Pine Tree, and Spring Hill High Schools to make up the 41st senior class to participate in the TB&T program in Longview.
The 2018-2019 Student Board members will be introduced to the TB&T bank staff in an Orientation Reception, to be held at , Monday, August 27, in the Main Bank lobby in downtown Longview. Parents and school administrators are invited to attend.
The Student Board program will be designed to introduce students to banking and money management at a critical point in their lives, and provide them with the essential economic building blocks to earning, spending, saving, and investing money. The students will be challenged this year to test their money management and time management skills with a program, entitled The Real L.I.F.E. Experience. This innovative Living Institute for Financial Education TBT program will take the students through a real world simulation of their first year of college. Students will also serve as advisors to the bank on bank products and services throughout the year.
Established in 1978, Student Board remains the bank’s first and most enduring financial literacy program.
Students were selected based on their grade point average, extra-curricular activities, and afterschool work activities. Students must submit an essay with their application as well as two letters of recommendation from either a faculty member or administrator to be considered for the program. Students accepted into the 2018 Student Board program were notified in late May.
Since its inception, the Student Board has introduced more than 2,200 high school seniors to banking and money management.
