Banking Local Helps Local Students Bank On College.

Since 2000, Peoples Bank & Trust Co. has awarded over $800,000 in annual college scholarships to graduating high school seniors from our local communities.  

“Our goal is to assist those young adults that have gone above and beyond in high school and are headed to college with the hopes that when they graduate, they become positive and involved members of their local communities and help make a difference. As a community bank, we care about our hometown and want to pass that sense of commitment along to the next generation of community leaders.”                                           – David Thompson, CEO/President of Peoples Bank & Trust Co.  

Applicants are evaluated on academic achievement, involvement in high school and community activities as well as financial need.
