OAK VIEW NATIONAL BANK PARTICIPATES IN “GET SMART ABOUT CREDIT” EVENTS WITH LOCAL TEENS
Warrenton, VA (October 27, 2011) –
In its effort to teach the local community how to effectively use credit, Oak View National Bank has teamed up with bankers across Virginia to support the American Bankers Association Education Foundation’s “Get Smart About Credit” program during the month of October.
The program, now in its ninth year, is a national campaign of volunteer bankers who help young people develop responsible credit habits. Oak View National Bank’s Senior Vice President of Administration Colin Borgstrom partnered with Marshall Middle School and the Fauquier County Public Library to provide several classes for over 100 teens in sixth to ninth grades. Class discussions focused on different types of available credit, budgeting now and for the future, and the role that banks play in our economy.
“It’s been our great opportunity to plug into a larger effort that has national recognition and to share ways to use credit responsibly with our local students,” said Michael A. Ewing, President and CEO of Oak View National Bank.
For more information on these programs with Oak View National Bank, please contact Mr. Borgstrom at (540) 359-7100 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
