Bishop Gorman seniors Jessica Carmona, Ellie Coan, KellyAnn Harrell, Katelynn Healy, Makenzie LeRoy, Matthew McKnight, Foster Morales, and Isabella Toliver were selected to join with other area seniors to serve on the Texas Bank & Trust Student Board of Directors, a prestigious program recognizing outstanding high school seniors in the community. These students and their parents were recently recognized at a Welcome Reception on August 30.
The Student Board program is designed to provide them with essential economic building blocks to earning, spending, saving, and investing money. The students will be challenged this year in stock game competition, entitled Bulls vs. Bears, where they will take a deeper dive into investing as they follow the stock market throughout the year with their “investment funds.” These students will also serve as advisors to the bank on youth financial literacy programming throughout the year.
Student Board members were selected based on their grade point average, extra-curricular activities, and after school work activities. Students must submit an essay with their application as well as two letters of recommendation from either a faculty member or administrator to be considered for the program.
