Connections Bank Announces 2023 Scholarship Recipients

According to Marian Wright Edelman, "Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it." In an effort to follow this directive, Connections Bank established a scholarship program in 2005 to encourage students in our community to further their education. Since its inception, the Connections Bank Scholarship Program has awarded to Platte, Andrew, Holt and Nodaway County Scholars. These scholarships are to be used towards enrollment at a four-year university. This year it was our honor to award scholarships to eighteen very deserving high-school seniors.

To the class of 2023 recipients:

Connections Bank always looks forward to continuing our support of our community and its youth in their future endeavors. We wish these graduates success in the future and hope that whatever life brings next, they'll always push forward.

Please join us in congratulating:
