As in years passed, the Student Board program will be designed to introduce students tobanking and money management at a critical point in their lives, and provide them with the essential economic building blocks to earning, spending, saving, and investing money. The students will be challenged this year to test their innovation and business development skills with a new program, entitled Investment Quest. As aspiring entrepreneurs, the student board members will have eight months to conceptualize a product, service, or business they could potentially bring to market.
Texas Bank and Trust established the Student Board - its first and most enduring financial literacy program - in 1978.
Students were selected based on their grade point average, extra-curricular activities, and afterschool 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. Students accepted into the 2014 Student Board program were notified in late May.
Since its inception, the Student Board has introduced more than 1,800 high school seniors tobanking and money management.
