Paragon National Bank visited Ms. Kimberly Martin’s third grade students at Hawkins Mill Elementary School for the final time during the 2012 – 2013 school year. The visit marked the completion of Paragon’s seventh consecutive year of sponsoring Martin’s classroom.
“Our team values the relationship we have built with Ms. Martin and her students,” said Robert Shaw, Chief Executive Officer at Paragon National Bank. “We’ve enjoyed watching all of the students mature over the years and look forward to continuing our partnership next year.”
Last month, Paragon employees Ashley Cullum, Haley Overcast and Nancy Walls visited Martin’s classroom, where they helped the students make handprint sand crabs, play word games and celebrate the last day of school.
During the 2012 – 2013 school year, Paragon visited Martin’s classroom on four occasions, each time playing games, making crafts and providing snacks to the students. During the bank’s first visit, employees marked the start of the new year by introducing themselves to students and distributing school supplies. In December, Paragon coordinated a holiday trip, which included a surprise appearance from Santa and stockings for each student. The bank’s third visit included a Valentine’s Day celebration, in which employees helped students create handprint bouquets and played a holiday-themed game of bingo.
