KEWANEE — Peoples National Bank of Kewanee have awarded Maddie Jackson of Annawan High School and Ashley Folger of Kewanee High School this year’s local CBAI Scholarship winners.

Jackson and Folger each received $250 cash contributions from PNB and entry in the statewide Community Bankers Association of Illinois’ scholarship competition. They now have a chance to win a $1,000 per year scholarship for up to four years of higher education.

To enter the local scholarship contest, senior students wrote essays about the importance of community banking. In their essays, the winners each displayed an understanding and appreciation for community banks and the benefits they provide. Each winner maintained the overall theme and made excellent points about the contributions of community banks to the local community.

Peoples National Bank of Kewanee will now sponsor and submit the winning essays in the statewide CBAI scholarship competition. Winners for the statewide competition are announced in May.
