SouthEast Bank Scholarship

SouthEast Bank operates branches throughout East and Middle Tennessee, blending modern amenities with hometown service and decision making. Their customers enjoy access to convenient electronic and mobile banking platforms, such as online banking, mobile deposits, person-to-person payments, automatic fraud monitoring, and a worldwide ATM network. By looking at their business through the eyes of our customers, they have differentiated themselves from other banks and financial institutions. Because they are an independent local bank, they make decisions quickly and locally without outside influence. From humble beginnings, SouthEast Bank has become a very dynamic bank providing innovative financial solutions for our customers. They take a long term management view instead of managing to a quarterly balance sheet that meets investors’ or analysts’ expectations. This enables them to provide greater value to their customers and the communities the serve.

SouthEast Bank commits to:

  • Understand their customers’ needs and then exceed them.
  • Provide a source of financial strength for their communities.
  • Promote and support education.
  • Support their employees and their families.
