Integrity First Bank of Pocahontas joined Williams Baptist University education students on April 16th to present the 22nd annual Teach Children to Save Day. The event was held at Alma Spikes Elementary School in Pocahontas.
Teach Children to Save Day is a nationwide program of the American Bankers Association, which aims to teach students about the value of saving their money.
Since 1997, Integrity First Bank has partnered with WBU’s Williams Teacher Education Program to bring Teach Children to Save Day to over 3,300 students. This year, the Williams students presented the lesson on saving to 160 Alma Spikes second graders.
Integrity First Bank employees assisted the student teachers with the lessons, and the bank presented each second grader a piggy bank with a dollar bill inside.
