Heritage Bank is pleased to announce Phyllis Wood as the 2013 Heritage Bank Scholarship Fund Marshall County Honoree. Three seniors from the Marshall County area will receive the Heritage Bank High School Scholarship in honor of Mrs. Wood and the commitment she has made to the Marshall County community. Over the last ten years, Heritage Bank has committed over $194,000 dollars in scholarship funds to 388 senior high school students planning to attend a higher education institution. This unprecedented effort is one of the largest of its kind, by touching more than twenty-nine schools across western Kentucky, middle and west Tennessee. Every senior student enrolled in a high school in each of the bank’s market communities has the opportunity to apply for one of the scholarship awards.

“We are very excited to play a vital role in the success of students in the neighborhoods we serve,” commented John Peck, President and CEO of Heritage Bank. Peck continued, “We feel strongly that every student should be able to pursue his or her dreams of a college degree and it is extremely rewarding to give scholarships to each high school in our market areas.”

Phyllis Wood taught English for thirty years, teaching at Benton Elementary and Benton Jr. High Schools. Mrs. Wood commented that her fondest memories were of her infamous snow dances and that overall teaching was by far the greatest job. Phyllis is currently devoting her time to babysitting her grandsons, reading, and volunteering at church.

Heritage Bank conducts neighborhood banking operations in the Kentucky cities of Hopkinsville, Elkton, Cadiz, Murray, Benton, Calvert City, Fulton, and the Tennessee cities of Pleasant View, Ashland City, Kingston Springs, Erin, and Clarksville. Heritage Bank records assets of more than 960 million.
