FNB Opens School Bank at FHS

Ribbon Cutting

With the help of Fayetteville High School and the Fayetteville City School Board, First National Bank is proud to pilot a High School Bank Program.

The ribbon cutting ceremony was on March 26.

Every few weeks, bank employees Heather McCormick and Anita Bryant will be set up at a custom teller window in the commons area before school to collect savings deposit from students.

Students are rewarded for every deposit they make with prizes, such as restaurant coupons and snacks.

There is no minimum deposit required to open the account and no minimum deposit needed on School Bank Day.

The goal of this program is to teach students the ins-and-outs of how a bank works, consistent savings habits and to help them be comfortable discussing finances with bankers.

First National started piloting their Elementary School Bank Program in August 2018 at two schools within their markets, Southside Elementary in Pulaski and Cedar Hill Elementary in Ardmore. They plan to expand the program in the 2019-2020 school year to the remaining Giles County elementary schools and three other schools in Limestone County and the City of Athens.

This program will continue to be offered in the fall. Account applications and School Bank Day schedules are available on the bank’s website,, at any First National Bank location and at the school.

Please stop by the office or call 931-433-5855 if you have any questions.
