“We are thrilled to launch the first year of our scholarship program. The number and quality of applicants exceeded our expectations.” said Steve Peotter, President and CEO of One Community Bank. “These three candidates are very involved in making a positive impact in their communities, which is a key component of why they were chosen. We wish them the best in their future endeavors.”
This scholarship program aligns with One Community Bank’s commitment to invest in our communities. The eligibility requirements to apply for the scholarships were as follows: the applicant must be a graduating high school senior, must be in good academic standing, and have post-graduation plans at a 2-year or 4-year institution; a technical or trade school; or an apprenticeship program. The application process also required an essay on community service and involvement. One Community Bank is excited to continue this investment into our communities for years to come.
