Resource Bank Announces Scholarship Commitment to Dillard University
Covington, May 9, 2022: Resource Bank announces the launch of The Resource Bank Scholarship Fund. The new scholarship program is part of a beginning partnership with New Orleans based Dillard University.
The scholarship is open to current undergraduates actively pursuing a degree in business at Dillard University. Resource Bank will award $1,000 in scholarship funds to two (2) qualifying students each semester, beginning with the Fall 2022 semester. The bank has committed to a total of $16,000 in scholarship funds.
Resource Bank believes that easing the cost of higher education has enormous potential to initiate change, and will play an important role in shaping our community's future. By engaging with local companies, students can build a network of mentors and business contacts. Through the Resource Bank Scholarship Fund, Resource hopes to encourage students to pursue careers within the financial industry and retain local talent.
"Resource Bank is committed to investing in future generations, and we believe that every act of sponsorship — even a small one — helps positively impact individuals who grow into contributing members of our communities," said Chris Keller, Chairman of the Board and CEO. "We hope that our new scholarship will not only encourage students to complete their degree goals, but also inspire them to take pride in financial education and to encourage others to do so as well."
To apply, students must reside in Orleans Parish, be majoring in Business at Dillard University, have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, be willing to meet with representatives of Resource Bank to attend a networking event, and write an essay or create a video description of his/her future career plans. Dillard University is responsible for the yearly promotion and recipient selection.

Resource Bank Presents Financial Education Workshop to Summer Camp
Covington, June 27, 2022: Representatives Taylor Keller and Amanda Caluda from Resource Bank visited Thomas Elementary in Franklinton to present an interactive financial education workshop for summer campers. The one-hour seminar consisted of lessons on ways to save and protect their money, along with the information to access it.
Third and fourth-grade campers played the role of secret agents by identifying savings mistakes made by characters in a story and were rewarded quarters for participating. At the end of the story, campers could choose to save their money or spend it on items in the "RB Gift Shop." "The children were very engaged with the lesson. They had such a good time," stated Cheri Thomas, camp director. This marks the fourth year the bank has visited Thomas Elementary campers. The workshop always has a mutually beneficial outcome, as bank employees truly enjoy fostering knowledge in our youth.
There is a need to address disparities in financial knowledge through financial literacy education. The bank strives to do its part to provide resources, programs, and counseling to consumers to close this gap. Resource Bank can offer financial literacy programs designed to provide both in-person and online resources to help children, youth, and adults increase their understanding of financial management. If your organization is interested in a Financial Literacy workshop, contact Marketing@resource.bank to schedule a presentation specifically designed for your group.
