Ribbon Cutting-Mohave State Bank Junior Bank

Jamaica School
3437 S. Jamaica Blvd.

Mohave State Bank bankers provide monthly financial literacy classes to every 5th and 6th grade Jamaica Elementary student throughout the school year. The 4th grade students receive classes twice a year. The bankers follow up teaching with the Junior Bank, which is open once a month before school and is run by a team of six 5th and 6th grade students selected by principal, Paula Levensailor. The junior bankers are responsible for marketing the bank to their fellow students, processing deposits, and mentoring their peers in the importance of saving money. The Lake Havasu Area Chamber Ambassadors held a ribbon cutting for the opening of the Jamaica Junior Bank. For more information contact Jamaica School at 854-7280.
