 Arvest Bank program helps class save almost $4,000

YELLVILLE, Ark. — Students in the Flippin School District will end the school year being more financially literate, and with some healthy savings to prove it. The fifth grade class took part in Arvest Bank’s Dollars and Sense program and collectively saved $3,918.82. The Dollars and Sense program teaches students of all ages financially literacy that includes the importance of saving and budgeting, as well as general information on banks, money, bartering and other relevant topics. The money saved was the result of students utilizing the information they learned in the program throughout the school year. As students deposited money into their personal savings accounts and brought the deposit slip to class, they received credit for their accomplishment.  

“When children learn the value of saving and general financial skills, especially at a young age, it can help set them up for success as they grow older,” said Tiffany Watkins, Assistant Vice President and Marketing Director for Arvest Bank in North Central Arkansas. “Not only are they learning to budget and prepare for their future, they are also getting early exposure to the financial industry and the many possibilities a career path could offer.”

Arvest Bank’s Dollars and Sense program is taught in the Flippin, Yellville and Cotter School Districts. For more information on the program visit www.arvest.com
