Huron Valley State Bank Supports Money Smart Week
Money Smart Week, a nationally-sponsored campaign dedicated to helping families better manage their financial resources is held the last week of April. To support this program, Huron Valley State Bank hosted a poster contest for elementary age students in the Huron Valley district and presented a segment on financial literacy to families at the Highland White Lake Business Association’s Money Camp.
The Money Smart Week Poster Contest hosted by Huron Valley State Bank asked the question, "Why Is a Penny Saved A Penny Earned?” There was a $25 cash reward for the best poster by grade level and a grand prize cash award of $100. Posters were submitted at the end of the month, judged by employees of the bank and displayed at the Highland and Milford Branch for two weeks. The poster winners are as follows:
Grade level winners are: Aniah Krahn (1st Grade, Country Oaks), Olivia Luttenbacher (2nd Grade, Heritage), Nellie Buckner (3rd Grade, Heritage), Maddy Herron (4th Grade, Kurtz), Tessa Koshkarian (5th Grade Johnson).
The grand prize winner was Lauren McCaul a Fifth Grader at Spring Mills.
“This year we had seventeen posters to judge, a pretty big increase from last year, our first year of the program. The candidates all put a considerable amount of time and detail into their posters and the employees at the bank really enjoyed carefully reviewing these posters. We look forward to next year’s poster contest,” said Jack Shubitowski, President and CEO of Huron Valley State Bank.
Also during the month of April, Huron Valley State Bank gave a financial literacy presentation to several families at the Highland White Lake Business Association’s annual Money Camp hosted on April 26th. Sheri Miles, Marketing Director and Nancy Gomez, Assistant Branch Manager, spoke to the group about check fraud and scams at the Highland Library.
“We are pleased to participate in this program and share from our experience some of the check fraud and scams that are out there,” said Sheri Miles, Marketing Director, “What a timely opportunity during Money Smart Week to share this information with the community.”
