Legence Bank Awards Second Merit Scholarship to Evansville Day School

Legence Bank is proud to partner with the Evansville Day School to invest in student success! We are awarding the second of three Merit Scholarships to a student in grade 9 through 12 at Evansville Day School. This generous merit-based tuition assistance package helps with up to 90% of their tuition. The second Legence Bank Merit Scholarship will be awarded to Mt. Carmel, Illinois resident, Alexandra Slane at a presentation in the EDS Commons at 3:15 p.m. on Thursday, September 5, 2019. 

“Legence Bank is very pleased to be involved with this Scholarship and appreciates the partnership with Evansville Day School in contributing towards the education of local students,” said Kevin Carrico, Chief Operating Officer – Legence Bank. Our team is proud of the close relationship we have with Evansville Day School and the students. It has been our privilege to watch each graduating class excel as they move through their high school years. Our mission of moving our communities forward and investing in the future starts with helping students further their education and bring their knowledge back into their hometowns. Living up to that mission is why we are awarding scholarships in each of the communities we serve. 

When asked to describe how she demonstrates attributes of the Evansville Day School Portrait of a Graduate, Lexi Slane wowed our team! “Resilience is one of the most important attributes because without it, we cannot expect to enjoy the fullness of life. I have courage in the face of adversity and work through setbacks and barriers to achieve my goals. With my balanced life, I am free to readily pursue my interests in life, such as entrepreneurial learning in which I take the initiative to research and develop ideas that interest me,” said the 2019-2020 Legence Bank Merit Scholarship Recipient at Evansville Day School. 

Head of School Kevin Kunst remarks, "Evansville Day School is grateful for Legence Bank's commitment to education, and we appreciate their partnership with us as we continue our long tradition of encouraging students to strive for excellence in mind, body, and spirit. Lexi is a wonderful recipient of this award and an example of that mission in action - a strong student, a dedicated athlete, and even in her short time here, an engaged and enthusiastic member of our community."

 “Legence Bank has made a long-term commitment to support, improve and foster a more significant focus on education in southern Illinois and southern Indiana, and this investment is an affirmation to that effort,” said Kevin Carrico, Legence Bank’s Chief Operating Officer. “Helping to raise the college graduation rate is a small investment in our community’s economic success.”

MEDIA RELEASE – RLC Foundation hosts 29th Scholarship Dinner

RLC Foundation hosts 29th Scholarship Dinner

INA, Ill. (Oct. 25, 2018) – Hundreds of Rend Lake College students and donors met for the first time last week for an evening of celebration during the 29th Annual RLC Foundation Scholarship Dinner, held Thursday, Oct. 18 at the Benton Civic Center.

During the event, guest speakers Joe Gliosci, Megan Rounds, Suzanna LeFebvre, and Phillip Smith shared their experiences giving or receiving scholarships. RLC Foundation CEO Kay Zibby-Damron and Board Chairperson Robert Bornheimer were also on hand to share in the evening’s festivities.

Zibby-Damron welcomed the audience to the event and, after introductions, thanked every person in attendance for their specific role – either as donors and alums or as students pursuing a college degree.

“To our scholarship donors, thank you for believing in the importance of education, for believing in Rend Lake College, and for believing in our students. Know that we are committed to doing everything we can to be good stewards of your gift,” said Zibby-Damron to the donors in the room. To the group of alumni donors, she added, “thank you for staying connected to Rend Lake College and for giving back to the place where you began your journey. Rend Lake College is very proud of you.”

To the students, she continued, “As you go home tonight and you go back to class, I want to ask two things of you. Number one, do your best. The people who are here tonight are interested in you and they know the value of education and they want to help you. It’s now your responsibility to be accountable for this gift. Simply do your best, show up, and don’t give up. Two, I want you to look for ways to pay it forward. Get involved in your community, help others, and as you start your career, I hope that you too will consider how you can give back to Rend Lake College. You are our future scholarship donors.”

Bornheimer echoed with words of appreciation to the students.

“As donors, we’ll tell you this is one of our favorite evenings of the year, because this is where our contributions come to life. We get to see the person who benefits from it, and getting to know you, what your plans are, that inspires us to keep giving. Thank you all for attending and giving us some time to get to know you a little bit,” he said.

First on stage for the guest speakers was Joe Gliosci, Illinois Region President of Legence Bank. As a surprise announcement, Gliosci said Legence Bank will sponsor two new scholarships for $1,000 each to be awarded during the 2019-20 academic year.

“We are excited and extremely thankful to be able to offer two scholarships to students who reflect how we approach our business every day,” said Gliosci. “We seek bright, curious, engaging students who make a difference in our communities. Our core values guide our Legence Bank team to help our customers and communities grow stronger, and these are the same values we look for in the scholarship recipients. They have professionalism, a strong work ethic, are a team player and community-minded, honesty with integrity, innovative, loyal, and my favorite, positive and enthusiastic attitude. We approach work with the spirit of generosity and look for students who approach education with the same manner. I have a feeling next year, we won’t have any problem finding two students to award this scholarship to.”

In response to the announcement, Zibby-Damron added, “Thank you. This is very exciting. This new scholarship creates two new opportunities for RLC students for next year. Thank you very much Joe and Legence Bank for your support.”

Next at the podium was RLC AmeriCorps Director Megan Rounds who shared her experiences as both a scholarship donor and recipient.

“Coming from a family of coal miners and farmers, I understand that education is not always something our parents or grandparents may have pursued. I was raised with the words, ‘when you go to college’ not ‘if you go.’ While most of my family may not have had a college education themselves, they did want that opportunity for me,” said Rounds.

She continued, “When it was time to leave high school, every penny made a difference for our family. I was blessed to receive an art scholarship for photography at Rend Lake College as well as financial support to attend SIU from my grandparents. When I received that scholarship, it was the community who were there to help support me, as well as my family.”

Rounds, alongside her husband Zach, made the decision to give back nearly two years ago. This year, the couple decided the increase their donation to the RLC Foundation.

“You’re here because you value education, the people within our communities, and we have joined together to provide them with support for their education. Zach and I decided to give a scholarship because we wanted to build upon the support already given to us by our community,” said Rounds. “We are hopeful we can make a difference each year, even if it is only one student. We know every penny counts, just as it did for my family. And we are so thankful we have the ability to do that now. We give in the hope that it will inspire others to help when and where it matters. Congratulations to all the students here. We are very proud of you.”

The program closed with two scholarship recipients giving words of thanks and sharing their experiences in college. First up was Suzanna LeFebvre of Mt. Vernon, who, after becoming homeless without a high school degree, found herself succeeding at RLC thanks, in part, to donors who made her dream a reality. She is currently a sophomore music major who aspires to become a music therapist.

“Ever since I was a little kid, I always dreamt about going to college and becoming an adult with a big career and lots of money; however, that dream started to fade when I was 18 and found myself without a home and a high school education,” said LeFebvre. “With no money and no job and no diploma to get a job, how was I going to be anyone?”

She continued, “After two years of hard work and getting good grades, I applied to the State Board of Education to receive my diploma. When I graduated, I received two scholarships that have helped me immensely. This year, I was even more blessed to receive scholarships again. The scholarships I have received have helped me – someone who once thought they were a nobody – to go to college to pursue a dream I once thought was impossible to reach.”

Last to take the podium was sophomore Phillip Smith of Christopher who shared the hardships of going back to school while also working and taking care of his family. Smith will graduate in May with an Associate Degree in Nursing.

“I went back to college after a less-than-stellar performance in high school. I went back, not as a teenager fresh out of high school, but as a husband and father several years after the fact. I’d often given a considerable thought about going back to school to join the medical community, but the financial ability often played a role in preventing that from occurring,” said Smith.

He continued, “Were it not for the generous donations of each and every one of you here tonight, myself and many other students might well be stalled in our efforts of laying the foundations of our own success. It is a great relief to have one less burden to bear so that our focus can be placed solely on our grades in the classroom and beyond. This summer, I will proudly be able to call myself a registered nurse. This is an achievement I can take a great deal of pride in, not only because of the hard work and long hours required to attain it, but also because, just a few years ago, it was nothing more than a dream. Your commitment to helping me achieve that is a gift I cannot possibly thank you enough for. That being said, I’ll give it a try. Thank you everyone, for every opportunity you’ve given to every recipient here, for your generosity and selflessness. You have done so much more than you know.”

During the 2018-19 academic year, the RLC Foundation has awarded nearly $200,000 in scholarships to Rend Lake College students. Incoming and current students can complete the 2019-20 RLC Foundation Scholarship application online at www.rlc.edu/foundation.

Setting goals and being a self-starter are traits I exemplify to accomplish my dreams,” said Adeleine Halsey, 2018-2019 Legence Bank Merit Scholarship Recipient at Evansville Day School.

LEGENCE BANK AND AMERICAN FARM MORTGAGE HOST A LIVE TAPING OF THE US FARM REPORT AT SIU-CARBONDALE ON JULY 24, 2018

Agriculture is one of Illinois’s leading economic enterprises – Legence Bank and American Farm Mortgage & Financial Services have been partners to this industry since they opened their doors in 1906 as the First State Bank in Eldorado, IL.  The Legence Bank and American Farm Mortgage Team has more than 150 combined years of experience in both agriculture and financial services, a rare combination in any industry.

The bank continues to implement new initiatives to help strengthen their knowledge and commitment to agriculture and to provide resources to our local farmers. Legence Bank and American Farm Mortgage are partnering with Southern Illinois University-Carbondale to host a LIVE taping of the US FARM REPORT from the SIU-Carbondale Campus on Tuesday, July 24, 2018. The panel will include US Farm Report Host – Tyne Morgan and two of the top market analysts, Chip Nellinger with Blue Reef Agri-Marketing, and Bob Utterback with Utterback Marketing. “At Legence Bank, we believe our purpose is to make our communities stronger and better—helping families, businesses, and farmers achieve financial success is why we exist.” said Alan Hoskins, President and CEO of American Farm Mortgage and Financial Services. 

As part of the bank’s commitment to agricultural education, Legence Bank and American Farm Mortgage will host its third annual Ag Forum on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at SIU-Carbondale. Premier sponsors are Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, Country Financial, and M&S Implement.  This is an exciting time, as they bring the US Farm Report to southern Illinois with a LIVE taping for national television.   This program will help provide clarity for the weeks and months ahead for our local farmers.  “There is quite a bit of financial stress with the uncertainty surrounding commodity markets today,” said Tyne Morgan, host of U.S. Farm Report. “The tariff threats and implementation acted as a wet blanket on prices this summer, driving down profitable prices to below break-even levels. I’m excited to be joined by two veteran analysts to navigate the volatility, ultimately trying to provide some clarity for the weeks and months ahead as farmers enter harvest.” 

“It will be an intimate discussion talking about the key issues and opportunities within the commodity markets. Attendees will have a chance to ask the analysts questions about market moves that are impacting their bottom-line.”

 For more information on any of the above Ag Initiatives, please contact Tricia Johnson, VP for Marketing and Communications at (618)-841-7868, or visit the website at LegenceBank.com and AmericanFarmMortgage.com.

Legence Bank is headquartered in Eldorado, IL and operates fourteen branches throughout southern Illinois and one branch in southern Indiana, with eight additional branches in southern Illinois recently acquired through Mid-Country Bank.
