South Coastal Bank, as part of their committment to the growth and enrichment of their community, is once again sponsoring the Junior Board of Directors Initiative.  According to Frances Wong, Marketing and Public Relations Officer of South Coastal Bank, the Junior Board of Directors was established to provide high school students with valuable experience regarding corporate structure, the business environment, and business processes.  Student board members attend monthly business meetings, participate in an annual project, and offer their feedback on programs designed for the student market.  Students gain personal experience with the inner workings of the world of business and contribute to their community in the process.   This year’s project for the JBOD is to design a teen debit card. 

In addition to North Quincy High School and Quincy High School, other local participating schools include Archbishop Williams High School, Braintree High School, Rockland High School, Scituate High School, and South Shore Vocational Technical High School in Hanover.  The JBOD is comprised of two representatives from each school (one senior, one junior).  North Quincy High School is proud to have Senior Lisa Yangserving as Chairman of the Junior Board of Directors.  “Lisa is a very inspiring young woman,” according to Jeannette Travaline, Senior Vice President of Retail Sales and Marketing.  “We are fortunate to have her on the Board!”

South Coastal Bank also plays a significant role in sponsoring the Quincy School~Community Partnership’s Annual Credit for Life Fair and provides backpacks and school supplies for each student at Lincoln Hancock Elementary School.  In addition, South Coastal Bank sponsors several extended day performing arts programs at the Beechwood Knoll Elementary School.  Quincy Public Schools is thankful to have South Coastal Bank as a committed partner.
