Indians, Banner Bank team up for scholarship contest | Schools
For the eighth consecutive year, Banner Bank and the Spokane Indians will team up to reward deserving high school seniors with college scholarships. Five area students will be selected to receive a $500 scholarship based on achievement in four areas: scholarship, leadership, character, and community development.
“To be able to give back to the community by rewarding area students the chance to further their education, and to do it in partnership with the Spokane Indians, is nothing less than a home run,” said Kirk Quillin, Banner Bank Senior Vice President.
In the seven previous years that Banner Bank and the Spokane Indians have worked together to award the scholarships, 36 area students have received a total of $18,000 towards their college tuition.
“We've enjoyed having the opportunity to help students set out and begin achieving their goals in higher learning,” said Indians Senior Vice President Otto Klein. “To continue the scholarship program is an exceptional way for us and Banner Bank to keep giving back to the Spokane community.”
The scholarships are open to any student who attends a high school in Spokane County. Students interested in receiving a Banner Bank Scholarship application should contact their school’s scholarship coordinator or email Otto Klein at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
