Cornhusker Bank Invests in Local High School Students
Cornhusker Bank (www.CornhuskerBank.com) believes one of the most valuable assets in the community is its youth. The bank and its associates make donations, raise funds, and provide learning opportunities through many different community organizations, such as Heartland Big Brothers, Big Sisters, the YMCA, and Junior Achievement. Each spring Cornhusker Bank donates significant funding to area high schools for post prom events in an effort to encourage safe, fun events to celebrate this rite of passage.
This spring, Cornhusker Bank is also acting as a “Champion Employer” as they champion the way for local high school youth to access paid information technology intern jobs through 1st Job-Lincoln. The 1st Job-Lincoln program, sponsored by Lincoln Human Resource Management Association, was designed to give high school students their first exposure to the information technology business. The program requires students to attend job preparedness events, prepare resumes and cover letters, participate in a job fair, and interview for the intern positions which run from June to August of this year with the Champion Employers. Sherla Post, Cornhusker Bank, SVP/HR/Training and Talent Development noted, “This is an exciting opportunity to foster future employment relationships, tapping into students’ fresh, new ideas, while impacting the education of our community youth during the course of an internship.”
Cornhusker Bank remains the oldest locally owned bank, demonstrating stability and soundness and investing in the growth of the community, valued customers and associates. For more information, please visit www.CornhuskerBank.com.
