Teaching Children to Save
The faster we can teach our children to save, the better our future will be! Security Bank recently participated in a UT Extension Project promoting money savings and the benefits of starting at an early age. We had a blast going to Dyersburg Primary School and making savings banks with the Second Grade Students. They were so creative and eager to start saving their money. Security Bank even gave them all a gold dollar to start their saving plan off right!
