Community Bank’s Annual Program Celebrates Students Academic Success


JOSEPH, OREGON – August 9, 2021
2021 marked the eleventh year of Community Bank’s annual Earn While You Learn program. Despite a chaotic
school year for teachers, students and their families, the program paid out over $11,800 to 552 student customers in the Eastern Oregon and Southeast Washington area. This brings the total paid out since the
program began in 2011, to $137,141!

The program is designed to encourage students in their academic success by awarding Community Bank Youth
Savings account customers for their good grades. During the months of June and July, all Community Bank
branches accepted end-of-the-year report cards from students in 1st through 12th grade. For every top grade
(indicated on the grading system used for each school) in a main school subject that appeared on the report
card, Community Bank deposited $1 into their Community Bank Youth Savings Account.

The Earn While You Learn Program is an annual reward of $1 per top grade, up to $50 annually per student, with
payments given for the whole school year in June and July.
