The Southside High School Student Council joined with school officials, the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce and representatives of Citizens Bank on Friday, Nov. 15, in cutting the ribbon to dedicate the new "Citizens Bank Quad" at the school.
Student Council President Savanna Wyatt (left) donates a $250 check from Southside High School students to Citizens Bank Executive Assistant Penny Thornton to contribute to the bank's "Blue Jeans Fund." For a $1 donation each, students were allowed to wear caps to school; just as a $1 donation allows Citizens Bank employees to wear blue jeans to work on Fridays. Bank employees have contributed $5,000 in “Blue Jean Friday” donations to worthwhile causes and organizations in the past year.
Thanks for helping, Southerners!!
