Life and Career Readiness Tours Midwest Bank
Students in the Family and Consumer Sciences Course “Life and Career Readiness” recently toured Midwest Bank. There they learned more about depository institutions and their services. The bank was originally stationed downtown but a couple years ago a new building was built as the new active Midwest Bank. The students were given a tour of the new bank and enjoyed hearing about how the bank was built. The students were fascinated by the fact that the new bank was built around the old bank vault. The class also viewed other areas of the bank and offices. Midwest Bank is one of the few banks in the area that has a card printing machine. The class was able to see the card printing machine but unfortunately wasn't able to see how it functioned. As some of the students are just being introduced to the banking system tips were given on fraud prevention, along with information on different types of checking and savings accounts. Their new training/internship program was also shared with the students.
Students attending were Jasmine Zuhlke and Destiny Pollard along with teacher Ronita Jacobsen. They found the tour and presentation very interesting and informative. "It was interesting to find out how foreign currency can be converted back and forth between different countries here at our Plainview bank," stated Jasmine Zuhlke.
