Paragon National Bank recently visited Ms. Kimberly Martin’s class at Hawkins Mill Elementary for an afternoon filled with crafts, gifts and a special visit from Santa. This is the seventh consecutive year that Paragon has sponsored Martin’s classroom by visiting students throughout the school year.
“Our visits to Ms. Martin’s classroom are always a highlight for our employees,” said Robert Shaw, Chief Executive Officer of Paragon National Bank. “This trip was especially fun because they were able to brighten the holiday season for these deserving students.”
During the latest visit, Paragon employees Lisa Barden, Dave Biter, Margie Smith and Haley Overcast decorated popsicle stick ornaments, read holiday stories and distributed gifts to the students. In addition, Biter, a Personal Banker for Paragon, helped orchestrate a surprise visit from Santa.
Each student also received a special stocking that included a holiday-themed picture book, pencils, erasers and candy. In addition, bank employees also gave Martin notebook paper, paper towels, pencils and folders for use in her classroom.
