Peoples Bank & Trust Co. is proud to present Joseph Fessenden Jr. with a $2,000 scholarship, renewable for four years. Fessenden graduated from Troy Buchanan High School and plans on attending Saint Louis University in the fall where he will major in mathematics. Applicants were evaluated on academic achievement, involvement in high school and community activities as well as financial need. “Our goal is to assist those young adults that have gone above and beyond in high school and are headed to college with the hopes that when they graduate, they become positive and involved members of their local communities and help make a difference,” said David Thompson, President/CEO of Peoples Bank. “As a community bank, we care about our hometown and want to pass that sense of commitment along to the next generation of community leaders.”
