BNA Bank is pleased to announce the winners of the 2013 BNA Bank Scholarship.All graduating high school seniors who plan to attend college in Mississippi were eligible to submit an application. The applications were reviewed and scored based on the following criteria: ACT or SAT Composite Scores, Grade Point Average, student curriculum, financial need, extra-curricular activities, and work activities.
"Our scholarship process is a very fair one," remarked Senior Vice President Mike Staten. "We use out of town judges who review applications not knowing the student's identity."
BNA Bank awards a $500.00 scholarship to a senior at each of the four high schools located in Union county and two $500.00 scholarships to two seniors at New Albany High School. This year's recipients are:
