BHS Liberator Pride Debit Card 

Begun in 2008, the BHS Liberator Pride debit card is a custom debit card designed by Bank of Bolivar with the help of students from Becky Shockley's Bolivar High School business classes. Not only is the design something of which the community can be proud, but the card generates monthly income for the school by giving five cents from each transaction of every card, every day. In under one year since its launch, the Liberator Pride debit card was already generating several hundred dollars per month for the school. This unique partnership between the bank, the school, and the community was recognized by the Missouri Independent Bankers Association in 2008 with their BKD Award for Excellence and Innovation.
