Community Bank branch managers Hailey Durrant & Katy Thomas join the Morning Buzz to discuss Financial Literacy Month and efforts to encourage the community to save.

We talk about special outreach in local schools that Community Bank holds regularly, to educate students on fundamental practices when it comes to saving, budgeting, and responsible use of credit. Working with teachers in the classroom to implement financial literacy into the curriculum, but also informing the general public at local branches too.

Rewards are a big incentive used by Community Bank to encourage financial responsibility. The “Earn While You Learn” program allows students K-12 to be rewarded with cash for good grades. The Win-Win certificate of deposit motivates members to save, while also allowing for a chance to win monthly and yearly rewards.
