Regions celebrates Black History Month

MERIDIAN —     During February, Black History Month, 29 Regions Bank associates across Mississippi volunteered to teach financial education to high school seniors, promote the Regions Riding Forward Scholarship Essay Contest and read books written by African-American Authors to children.

    In Meridian, Regions associate Jeanie Pagel read books to students at Northeast Elementary School. Students enjoyed hearing stories about African-Americans and answering questions about the stories that were read to them.

    Those who answered the questions correctly were awarded a Regions ‘piggy bank’ and each student received a lollipop.
