Bank Awards Two Scholarships

First Community Bank and Trust Supports Local School Districts Through Scholarship Donations

Beecher, Illinois - June 3, 2011 - First Community Bank and Trust recently awarded scholarships to two graduating seniors, one each from Beecher High School and Peotone High School. Tim Johnson, the Valedictorian of Beecher High School's Class of 2011, received a $1,000 scholarship and plans to attend Michigan State University. The Scholarship was awarded through the Beecher Scholarship Foundation and was presented by Steven Koehn, the bank's Vice President of Marketing, at the Commencement Ceremony on Sunday, May 29, 2011 at the high school.

In Peotone, Alise Gromala received the First Community Bank and Trust Scholarship awarded through the Peotone Community Scholarship Association. Tammy Hoffman, a Senior Vice President with the bank, presented Alise with the $500 award at Peotone's Graduation Ceremony on Friday, May 27, 2011. Alise plans to attend Illinois State University.

First Community Bank and Trust has given these scholarships since the establishment of the scholarship foundations - since 1963 in Beecher and since 1994 in Peotone. In addition, employees of the bank volunteer their time to serve on the boards of both scholarship associations and have been instrumental in the fundraising efforts of each. The bank firmly believes in supporting the school districts in the communities they serve and have contributed to many of their departments and organizations through the years.
