(above) First grade students at Combre Fondel Elementary in Lake Charles had a great time learning basic banking skills with JD Bank Branch Manager Kayla Robinson and Commercial Lender Kyle Mestayer as part of Junior Achievement's JA in a Day program.

(above) Bank of Zachary partnered with Central Private in an effort to introduce financial education to the students in a very unique and hands-on way—by opening an actual student-led, in-school branch that will serve students, staff and families of the school. A ribbon cutting was held in celebration of completing the construction phase of the project and there will be a branch grand opening held in the fall.
