IBERIABANK Reaches 6,000 Students with Financial Literacy Effort

LAFAYETTE, La., June 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- IBERIABANK (www.iberiabank.com), the 130-year-old subsidiary of IBERIABANK Corporation, recently joined forces with schools across seven states to participate in the American Bankers Association's Teach Children to Save campaign. Over 200 IBERIABANK associates from the commercial, retail, senior management, finance, marketing, and other departments volunteered to teach over 6,000 elementary and middle school students in 20 markets.

Teach Children to Save Day is a national effort that encourages bankers to demonstrate their community commitment by teaching young people about the value of saving. Individual lessons focused on the differences between needs and wants, how to save, reasons to save, and where to save.

Through financial literacy programs, financial support, and volunteerism, we strive to enrich the lives of our associates, clients, and the greater community," said Daryl Byrd, IBERIABANK President and CEO.

"Our goal in participating in the Teach Children to Save program is to begin to establish a mindset for students to become lifelong savers by motivating them and instilling positive habits at a young age," commented Beth Trotter, IBERIABANK Executive Vice President and CRA Officer. "This is the third year that we have participated in this effort. We hope that these lessons will have a positive impact on the next generation over time."
