Students banking on their future

From School Reports

Students enrolled in the Business Management program at the Webster County Career and Technology Center have participated in the first of several “mini-job shadowing” activities available to them throughout the school year.

Regions Bank hosted the first activity by allowing the students to grasp how the concepts learned in their Personal Finance unit are applied in real business transactions. Bonita Martin, Regions branch manager, greeted the students and presented an overall view of what the bank now offers for their customers.

Miranda Morrow, financial services representative, demonstrated the process of opening checking and savings accounts with new customers. Lisa Fulgham, team leader and financial services representative, led the students through the process of helping customers secure loans and also supervised as students observed bank tellers performing daily tasks.

Students who participated in the Regions Job Shadowing activity are Patrick Boone, Elania Kirkman, Josie Johnson, Carley Phelps, Aryn Prier, Cheyenne Crooks, Cassidy Barton, Brittany Cooper, Ashleigh Berryhill, Michaela Berryhill, Vionica Johnson, Carmen Hillhouse, Haley Pate, Chloee Griffin, Malakia Kuhn and Kayla Narmour. The Business Management program is taught by Dionne S. Hodges.
