For the ninth year, CedarStone Bank has partnered with the four Rotary Clubs in Wilson County to participate in The Dictionary Project. This year, the project delivered over 1,800 dictionaries, one to every third-grader in the county in both public and private schools. John Sloan, CedarStone Bank’s Mt. Juliet Business Developer and head of public relations for the Mt. Juliet Noon Rotary Club, helped coordinate the distribution of the dictionaries to the third-graders. In total, the Rotary Clubs have given over 15,000 dictionaries this year.

Mentors are changing lives.

Cedarstone Bank Supports Education

Continuing an education after high school can be a big challenge: it's expensive and some students have to work in addition to studying. The Tennessee Promise Scholarship program has partnered with TnAchieves to help local students with obtaining a secondary education. TnAchieves pairs first-generation, low-income college students with adult mentors to help those students enter the world of secondary education and successfully reach their goals.

Two CedarStone Bank managers will be mentoring TnAchieves students in 2015. Beth Schulze, manager of CedarStone’s Mt. Juliet branch, says, “Having a mentor could mean the difference between success and failure for some of these students.” Mentoring will help the students navigate the application and enrollment process and keep them on track during their first semester. Melynda Bounds, manager of the Lebanon branch, added, “I feel very fortunate to live in a state that offers students the opportunity to go to college.” For information, visit www.tnachieves.org.
