Evan Smith, branch manager at Liberty National Bank, presents Fairbanks senior Samantha Picklesimer with a $1,500 scholarship from the bank’s Financial Literacy Program.
Liberty National Bank offered three scholarship opportunities to local students that completed the Liberty National Bank Financial Literacy Program.
The free, online financial literacy program sponsored by Liberty National Bank, at no cost to the schools. Liberty National Bank is partnered with leading education technology company EverFi, Inc., to bring this interactive, web-based financial management program to 730 students across eight schools in Hardin, Logan and Union Counties with 3,693 hours of learning this school year.
Twenty-eight students within the three counties submitted applications for the Liberty National Bank My Money Matters scholarship. Samantha Picklesimer from Fairbanks High School received the top scholarship of $1,500. Evan Smith, AVP and Branch Operations Manager of Liberty National Bank, presented the scholarship to Picklesimer at the Fairbanks High School Awards Banquet. She will be attending Bowling Green State University this fall studying Communication Sciences and Disorders.
“Liberty National Bank is very proud of the number of students we have reached with critical financial education, as it is just one of the many indicators of our commitment to the Union County,” Ron Zimmerly, President and CEO of Liberty National Bank said. “We are proud of these statistics and prouder yet of the students’ efforts to understand important aspects of personal finance like what a credit score means and how to save for college.”
