Paragon National Bank recently hosted University of Mississippi student Reece Charles Paul as summer intern. During his internship, Paul was able to work alongside bank employees at all of Paragon’s banking centers, including Fountain Place, Grove Park, Paragon Place and Saddle Creek.
“We really enjoyed getting to know Reese during his internship and we’re glad he was able to join the Paragon team this summer,” said Robert Shaw, Chief Executive Officer at Paragon National Bank.
A native Memphian and graduate from Christian Brothers High School, Paul is currently studying business management at University of Mississippi, where he is a member of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. After graduation, Paul plans to attend graduate school at the University of Memphis and secure a job in the financial field.
Throughout the internship, Paul assisted bank employees with cashing and depositing checks, creating cashiers checks and making loan payments on behalf of Paragon customers. Additionally, Paul was also able to participate in many of Paragon’s events, including the bank’s eighth Make-A-Wish Mid-South event, Customer Appreciation Day and several all-employee breakfasts.
“Throughout my two month internship, I was extremely fortunate to work with incredibly nice people at Paragon and I’m very grateful for the opportunity,” said Paul.
