Student Board of Directors Experience

Texas Bank and Trust Student Board has been one of the most helpful experiences in my high school career. Coming into the student board, I had no idea about how to manage my money in a way that would benefit me and the road ahead of me.

Every meeting was different. I learned about saving accounts, TBT’s myOFM app, and so much more. This helped me set aside certain sections in my bank account that allowed me to save for spending on specific items. I never understood how much budgeting can benefit a person, even after watching my older brother go through the Texas Bank and Trust Student Board program.

I watched him save his money and use every meeting they had to help him, and not hurt him. However, it wasn't until I was served on the board myself that I truly learned what it actually meant to save money, and to be careful with all of my social media accounts!

My advice to high school seniors is to START SAVING now! Texas Bank and Trust has had the biggest impact on my high school career, and has most definitely helped me get ready for college!
