The recipients of the American Bank and Trust Scholarship Fund were announced this week at a celebration at The Bistro. Each of the five recipients was awarded a $1,000 scholarship toward his or her college education at Western Kentucky University.
This scholarship fund was established to recognize and reward students from the local high schools in Bowling Green and Warren County. Every year a student is chosen from each of the following schools: Bowling Green High School, Greenwood High School, South Warren High School, Warren Central High School and Warren East High School.
“American Bank & Trust is proud to invest in our youth and their education and our local community. We congratulate this year's recipients and wish them the best of luck as they enter this new phase in their lives," said Tony Salyer, President of American Bank & Trust.
“We are grateful for the support provided by this local bank.” said Donald Smith, President of the College Heights Foundation, “This is the fifth year this fund has helped deserving students in Bowling Green and Warren County obtain a valuable education at WKU, and the impact will continue in perpetuity.”
