Paragon National Bank recently visited Ms. Kimberly Martin’s third grade class at Hawkins Mill Elementary to meet the students and celebrate the start of a new school year. This is the seventh consecutive year that the bank has sponsored Martin’s classroom by making seasonal visits throughout the year, each time playing games, making crafts and providing snacks.
“Our visits to Ms. Martin’s classroom are very meaningful to our employees,” said Robert Shaw, Chief Executive Officer of Paragon National Bank. “We’re excited to witness the development of these students throughout the year and hope they look forward to our time together as much as we do.”
During Paragon’s first visit, employees Haley Overcast, Lisa Word, Nancy Walls, Steve Maury, Joyce Davis and Sue Ann Boehme introduced themselves to students and distributed school supplies, including paper towels, hand sanitizer, tissues and notebook paper. The employees and students played games and worked together to create “dog-eared” bookmarks for the students to use throughout the year. Following the activities, students enjoyed snacks provided by the bank.
