Community Scholarship Program

Country Bank is pleased to announce the presentation of 15 scholarships in the amount of $2,000 each, to area high-school seniors. Country Bank scholarships were offered to graduating students within the region. The applicants needed to demonstrate a commitment to their communities through volunteerism and leadership by submitting an essay outlining their experiences along with recommendations from their guidance counselors or teachers. A committee of five Country Bank staff selected the recipients after reading more than 100 submissions.

“We are so pleased with the response we received,” said Shelley Regin, senior vice president, Marketing at Country Bank. “Each applicant had a unique perspective on their involvement in helping others, from becoming an Eagle Scout, feeding the homeless, working with the Special Olympics, and developing a community service club at their school. We were so inspired by the great work that these students are doing in their communities and how they are making a difference in the lives of others.”
