February 7, 2023 - Seneca High Schoolers Visit to Learn About Banking
Seneca High School came to visit us on February 7th. Students from Accounting Level III led by teacher Mrs. Kim Foster came to learn from our employees about their careers, background and experiences in banking. They were all welcomed by Craig Hepner, CEO/President, to kick off their day. Students were able to ask questions, take a tour of the building and get an in-depth understanding of what it means to be a community bank. This event was organized by Tracie Steider, COO/VP/Director of HR, and Erin Clark, HR Assistant. This is the second year in a row that the bank has hosted Mrs. Foster's accounting class and we always enjoy the opportunity. A great day!
