Sixteen sixth-grade students from Hardin and LaRue Counties were awarded the annual Magnolia Bank “Preparing for Success” Scholarships on March 1. Students were asked to write an essay telling what would make a great career, and how they plan to pursue that career. 

 “The goal of this program is to get kids and their families talking about college early.  We want to help students in our area get off to a good start saving for their future,” said Stefanie Rock, Vice President at Magnolia Bank.   

The winners, along with their parents, were treated to a pizza party at Mr. Gatti’s in Elizabethtown. At the awards ceremony, Magnolia Bank’s Executive Vice President, H.Y. Davis presented the scholarship recipients with a T-shirt, book bag, award certificate and a $100 certificate of deposit with Magnolia Bank.

This is the seventh year Magnolia Bank has offered the scholarship program and to date has given more than $14,000 in scholarship money to sixth grade students in the community.
