Elementary students in North Central Arkansas save more than $2,900 with Dollars and Sense program.

YELLVILLE, Ark. — Arvest Bank sponsors an annual financial literacy program for area schools. The program, called Dollars and Sense, has been implemented at Yellville-Summit and Flippin Elementary School. This year, utilizing skills taught in the program, 5th grade students at Flippin Elementary were able to save a total of $2,903.65. 

Students are encouraged and rewarded throughout the year to save their own money and receive credit for each deposit receipt they bring to class. Each student at the participating school has the opportunity to learn about the importance of saving money as well as general information on banks, money, bartering and job interviews. 

“This financial literacy program has been a huge success in the community. It’s a fun way for students to learn about the importance of saving money and spending wisely. We’re thrilled that Arvest associates can bring a little bit of our banking knowledge into the classroom,” said Tiffany Watkins, assistant vice president and marketing officer of North Central Arkansas.
