Banking on Character First: January 2018 Award
First National Bank is pleased to award Mason Bush from Southview Middle School the April Banking on Character First award. Mason is working on his Eagle Scout project with Troop 85 of Ankeny. Mason will be taking care of the Adopt - a- Flowerbed plot at the Kirkland Library and will also be planting flowers in another plot that belongs to the library. Mason will implement this project by collaborating with library staff and Boy Scout leaders, ordering/buying plants, designing a plot layout, and then leading the planting. After Mason’s initial planting, he will be weeding and watering them throughout the summer with occasional help from volunteers. Volunteers will include Boy Scouts, friends and family. Mason’s project will benefit both the city and library by making the area look beautiful. This will also allow library staff to focus on their work and other important projects at the library. Mason Bush will be rewarded for his project submission with a $75 Savings Account at First National Bank and another $75 to help with the implementation of his project. Teacher Amy Akers was awarded a check for $50 to be used in her classroom as she continues to encourage her students to give back to the Ankeny community through community service projects.
