"Your Checking Account" for Students

Bank of Bolivar provides an educational program entitled, YOUR CHECKING ACCOUNT to area high schools. This free program is designed to help students learn the techniques and responsibilities of maintaining a personal checking account.

Each student will receive a supply of checks, deposit slips, bank statements and related reference material. After learning how to open an account, keep checkbook records and reconcile monthly statements, students will maintain their own checking account for a simulated eight-month period.

Additional banking services such as the use of ATM machines, debit cards and internet banking are also covered.

BOB offers this service free of charge to all area schools. For more information on incorporating money management into your classroom, please call 777-6500.
