We are continuing our longer than 60-year tradition of providing the community we serve with quality financial products and services.  We know it is becoming increasingly difficult to find a good paying job without a college education, and it's cost prohibitive for many families to send their children to college.  We hear this from our members all the time.  This is why we are committed to relieving a small part of that burden for the selected students as they enter their first year of college.
