VBA Bank Day at CB&T!
On Tuesday, March 20, local high school seniors will spend the day shadowing bankers at Citizens Bank & Trust Company as part of Bank Day, a statewide effort sponsored by the Virginia Banker's Association (VBA) Education Foundation and VBA Emerging Bank Leaders. The purpose of the day is to expose students to the banking industry and provide an opportunity for the students to learn about banking, financial services and the vital role Citizens Bank & Trust Company plays in the community.
The third Tuesday in March was declared Bank Day by the Virginia General Assembly in 1991 and CB&T proudly hosted nine students in March for this important program. From their experience, participating students will write an essay for the chance to win a scholarship. In all, twelve students will receive scholarships totaling $26,000.
During their visit students will visit various bank departments, learning about the loan process, importance of good credit, the profile of a qualified borrower, appropriate etiquette during a job interview, how CB&T is involved in the community, the Federal Reserve System and more. Students will join bank CEO, Joe Borgerding, and the Senior Management team, for lunch and discuss strategic planning and what it takes to successfully run a community bank.
