Banking on Character First: January 2018 Award
First National Bank is pleased to award Josie Breuklander from Northwest Elementary School the January Banking on Character First award. Josie organized a community service project gathering coats, blankets, gloves and hats to donate to homeless shelters throughout the community. Josie was encouraged by her 5th grade teacher Emily Hodson. Josie believes that everyone deserves to be comfortable and warm during the winter months and recognizes the importance of giving to those less fortunate and she has made various announcements motivating all students to bring donations to better our community. Josie Breuklander will be rewarded for her project submission with a $75 Savings Account at First National Bank and another $75 to help with the implementation of her project. Teacher Emily Hodson 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
