The 2013 Personal Economics Program (PEP) Awards and Recognition Ceremony was held during Tennessee Bankers Association’s recent leadership convention at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Nashville.
During the Leadership Convention, Diane Riggs, vice president and PEP key banker, of Community National Bank, Dayton, Tenn., received the following Awards:
2012-2013 Certificate of Recognition — Awarded to bankers who complete 12 or more presentations
2012-2013 Golden PEP Banker Award — Awarded to bankers who completed 75 or more presentations.
2012-2013 Grand Division Winner, East Tennessee — Awarded to the banker in each division of the state who made the most presentations for 2012-2013 by the awards deadline.
2012-2013 Outstanding PEP Banker — Awarded for superior educational contributions to the local community.
The Personal Economics Program (PEP) is a voluntary effort by bankers to supplement conventional education programs and reach out to students — from kindergarten through college — to civic groups and business organizations, to senior groups and to other consumers in an attempt to help them understand money management, the wise use of credit, Internet banking, identity theft, predatory lending and other issues encompassing personal finance.
The Tennessee Bankers Association’s Young Bankers Division has been involved in this program since 1962 when the division first initiated an aggressive campaign to assist teachers in broadening the public understanding of banking. Each year, the Young Bankers Division presents awards to banks and bankers who demonstrate exceptional performance in the area of financial literacy.
