Monday’s Pellissippi State Scholarship of the Week is the CBBC Bank Scholarship.
CBBC Bank was organized in 1973 as a locally-headquartered, independent community bank with local ownership, and remains that way today.
The mission of CBBC Bank is to make our LOCAL community a better place to live and work. This is accomplished by employing highly skilled and motivated team members with personal integrity and strong core values. Our commitment is to anticipate and exceed expectations in providing the best possible banking solutions for our customers’ needs. Our clients are not only our customers, they are also our friends, neighbors, and family.
CBBC wants to help strengthen our community. One of the best ways to strengthen a community is to provide its members with the knowledge they need to meet their goals. CBBC is hoping that by providing these scholarship grants, they can help adults go back to school and get the education they desire.
To be considered for the CBBC Bank Scholarship, a student must be a resident of Blount County, be over 25 years old and have verifiable financial need.
Each year, up to five Pellissippi State students receive CBBC Bank Scholarships.
