Q&A with Erin Batey

Bank invests in financial literacy

Q: I understand Quail Creek Bank is sponsoring interactive curriculum produced by the financial guru Dave Ramsey for use by 18 area schools. Can you tell us about the initiative?

A: Yes, we have committed more than $25,000 to this exclusive sponsorship for 2012 and have seven of our staff dedicating time to each of the following schools: ASTEC Charter Middle High School, Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School, Crossings Christian School, Deer Creek High School, Dove Science Academy, Harding Charter Preparatory High School, Harding Fine Arts Academy, John Marshall Middle High School, Mount St. Mary Catholic High School, Mustang Middle School, Mustang North Middle School, Piedmont High School, Putnam City High School, Putnam City North High School, Putnam City West High School, Santa Fe South Charter High School, SeeWorth Academy and Trinity School.

Q: Why is your bank making this investment?

A: Our No. 1 priority is to help educate our future citizens, and improve our community. Partnering with the schools to help meet, and exceed, the state-mandated financial literacy requirements seemed like a good fit. Also, these young adults do banking differently than their parents.

We also recognize that today's students will be our next generation of customers.
