Rebecca Duke, Marketing Director at Century Bank and Trust recently visited the Preschool class of Kim Jones and Jeannie Prater in Bronson in honor of Teach Children to Save Day. Duke read two stories about saving to the students and talked about the importance of saving versus spending. Each student received a savers certificate, a two dollar bill and take home material.
Sponsored by the American Bankers Association Education Foundation (ABAEF), National Teach Children to Save Day is a day when bankers make presentations in schools across the country to students about financial responsibility.
“I’m proud to be able to represent Century during National Teach Children to Save Day. Educating our young people is not only a rewarding experience, but teaching the future generation how to be financially responsible will help our community to grow and benefit in years to come,” Duke commented. “You can never start too early!”
