As members of the Council, the students met throughout the year with the Bank’s Chief Executive Officer, Scott Harvard, Vice President of Finance and Council Liaison, Kara Keller, and other members of the Bank’s senior management team. The students provided valuable feedback on the Bank’s products, services and marketing program.

“It is incredibly valuable to hear directly from today’s students who will be contributors to tomorrow’s workforce.  We enjoy and look forward to this partnership each year,” said Scott Harvard.

The students had their last meeting of the year on April 17, 2019. They presented videos of the financial impact First Bank and other community banks have on our local economy. 

Council Chairman, Prava Maharjan, said of her final council meeting, “The opportunities I’ve had over the past two years have been really great! It’s nice to have a hands-on experience and the chance to speak directly with the CEO, CFO and other senior management members.”
