Education

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – Students at one Mid-South school are getting hands-on experience when it comes to banking.

Regions Bank partnered with Trezevant CTC to open the Trezevant Savings Bank at the school.

The bank will be student-run and will allow students to open their own bank account.

The program helps students learn how banks operate, while teaching them the value of saving money for the future, along with life skills for any career they choose.

“The one thing that I’m focused on is my students really getting a good handle on the soft skills, the soft skill things like customer service and being very pleasant, keeping a smile on their face,” said Tracey Thomas, Trezevant Savings Bank Instructor. “I want them to have skills that can transfer to any career that they choose in their future.”

The program is for students under 18-years-old who want to save money now.

The program also offers students dual enrollment at Southwest Tennessee Community College.
