Adams Bank & Trust receives award PDF Print E-mail

Megan Jehorek, EVP of retail banking for Adams Bank & Trust, accepted the Personal Economics Program (PEP) Silver Star Award on May 9 during the Nebraska Bankers Association 2014 Annual Convention held in Omaha.  Presenting the award to Adams Bank & Trust were NBA Chairman Craig Brewster and outgoing Chairman John Stinner.
PEP is a volunteer program designed to teach consumers of all ages about personal money management and to assist consumers in making educated financial decisions.  
It is an opportunity for bankers to work with local teachers and community leaders to educate the public about financial management.  
PEP also provides an opportunity for bankers to become more aware of their community and consumers’ needs, wants, and perceptions.
Adams Bank & Trust was one of two Nebraska banks to earn the Silver Star Award.  It is awarded based on the bank making the most financial literacy presentations while keeping a small overall class size of between two and 10 students per presentation.
