“We are excited to continue the TBK Scholars Program in 2020,” said Brandi Dunn, Director of Community Engagement for TBK Bank. “Training Future Leaders is one of our core philanthropic values and this scholarship program allows us to invest in our local communities by investing in local students.”

This is the second year for the TBK Scholars program. Last year’s recipients attended College of the Holy Cross, Fort Hays State University, Illinois State, Judson University, Otero Junior College, St. Ambrose University, The University of Texas at Arlington, University of Colorado Bounder, University of Northern Colorado and University of Utah.

2019 TBK Scholars Program recipient Emily Brodbeck recently told the company, “I just completed my first semester at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa. Academically, I was particularly challenged in my biology course in which I conducted my own scientific research at a nearby marsh. I want to thank TBK Bank once again for your contribution to my higher education as I work towards becoming a Doctor of Physical Therapy.”

TBK Bank created the TBK Scholars Program in 2019 with the goal of helping train future leaders in the communities it serves.
