|FNB Scholarship Winners|
Jacob Miller, Madyson Epplin and Ian Henne were recently named 2016 First in Education Scholars by First National Bank in Pinckneyville. Each will receive $4,000 to advance their higher education goals.
The $12,000 this year brings the total amount in scholarships to Pinckneyville Community High School graduates to $180,000 since the program was started in 2001.
First in Education was established by the board of directors of FNB as a way to demonstrate the bank's commitment to youth of this region. Since then, 45 students have shared in the scholarship money making it the largest scholarship offered by a local, private business.
|STUDENTS TOUR FNB|
On April 19 local students from District 50 and St Bruno came to First National Bank. They learned how things are kept safe in the safe deposit boxes, how the ATM works and to keep your pin a secret, how the drive through works, what happens when you bring in coin to deposit and what bookkeeping does. They also got some hands on experience at running the coin counter and rolling coins. We also encouraged them to save money by giving them a bank with some coins in it to help get them started.

"The ZOO was created for the students and by the students," said FNB President David Pirsein. "We are just providing the props to make it more fun."
