In the 2018 - 2019 school year, Central Bank employees taught 1,819 children from nine Nebo School District elementary schools as part of the American Bankers Association “Teach Children to Save Program.”

Each year, Central Bank employees look forward to spending many hours participating in these local financial literacy programs that benefit and strengthen the communities of Utah County.

“There are many facets of my job that I enjoy immensely and participating in the Teach Children to Save Program is definitely near the top,” said Kristine Fry, a Loan Assistant in Central Bank’s Payson Office.

Teach Children to Save is sponsored by the ABA Foundation and provides bankers nationwide an opportunity to serve their community and teach young children the importance of saving. Central Bank is one of only two local Utah County Banks that participated in the Teach Children to Save Program this year.

“We feel a great responsibility to serve and educate our community, which is why Central Bank employees have participated in TCTS for the last several years. This program introduces children to financial principles and provides them the tools they need to successfully manage their money—and we are proud to be a part of that,” said Mark Packard, Bank President.

Central Bank has served the communities of Utah County for over 128 years and currently operates 11 locations from the Point of the Mountain to Payson.
