High school seniors to serve

Thirteen Tyler ISD High School seniors have been selected to serve on the Texas Bank and Trust 2011-2012 Student Board of Directors. The TB&T Student Board is a prestigious program recognizing outstanding high school seniors in the community.
Five seniors from John Tyler – Redis Jones, DeVonte Haggerty, Andrea Huerta, Rocquel Pettigrew, and Eduardo Serratos and eight seniors from Robert E. Lee – Caroline Brookshire, Catherine Butschi, Ruben Espiricueta, Katie Nelson, Briana Owens, Cole Paxson, Bridget Reily, and Reagan Smith will join 22 students from other Tyler high schools to make up the third class to participate in the TB&T Tyler program.
The 2011-2012 Student Board members were introduced to the TB&T bank staff in an orientation reception on Tuesday, August 30.
Students were selected based on their grade point average, extra-curricular activities, and afterschool work activities. Students submitted an essay with their application as well as two letters of recommendation from either a faculty member or administrator to be considered for the program.
The Student Board program is designed to introduce students to banking and money management at a critical point in their lives and provide them with the essential economic building blocks of earning, spending, saving, and investing money.
This year, for the first time in the program’s history, the students will participate in a hands-on exercise in running their own small business. Throughout the nine-month program, the student directors will learn goal-setting, budgeting, business operations, advertising, and customer service planning, culminating with the “launch” of their business in March 2012.
Since its inception, the Student Board has introduced more than 1,595 high school seniors to banking and money management.
For information on how to participate in the 2012-2013 Student Board program, please contact Abigail Duty, TB&T Business Development Officer at (903) 579-8141.
