Susquehanna Bank employees teach students the value of saving

June 20, 2008

Susquehanna Bank employees spent time at 21 local schools during April and May to teach more than 1,000 county students the importance of budgeting and saving money.

These efforts supported the National Teach Kids to Save Day, a nationwide program organized by the American Bankers Association Education Foundation.

More than 200 bank employees visited schools in Allegany, Baltimore, Carroll, Garrett, Harford, Howard and Washington counties in Maryland; Franklin and Bedford counties in Pennsylvania; and Berkeley County in West Virginia.

"This year's Teach Kids to Save program, in conjunction with Susquehanna Bank's year long financial literacy initiative, was our most successful to date," said Mike Hough, president and COO for Susquehanna Bank.

"Our employees demonstrated once again their commitment to serving the community through the most powerful tools at their disposal - their incredible knowledge of finance and the banking industry as well as their ability to pass on that knowledge to local students so that they too begin to appreciate and understand the power of saving."
