Deep Run pupils open accounts at school bank

Deep Run Elementary School in Elkridge along with its business partner, Commercial and Farmers Bank, had a "Blue Ribbon" ceremony yesterday celebrating the grand opening of a student bank. The branch constructed a miniature bank that will be placed in the lobby of the school every Wednesday. Every fifth-grade student will have an opportunity to be a bank teller at the new bank during the school year.

Bank president Jack Whiteside, bank manager Heather Cassell and other banking officials attended the ceremony.

Students learned how to fill out a job application, become familiar with banking forms, how to handle the deposits, and how to provide quick and courteous service.

The entire school participated in the opening day ceremony. There were 63 savings accounts opened. Children wishing to take money out of their accounts at Commercial and Farmers Bank can do so by going to the bank office in Elkridge. The Iota Lambda Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority will present an awareness program honoring the Tuskegee Airman Inc. and other African Americans involved in aviation during World War II, from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Roger Carter Neighborhood Center in Ellicott City.

Guest speakers are retired Air Force Lt. Col. W. W. Crockett and retired Army Col. William A. DeShields. This free event is held in conjunction with AKA's "Ivy AKAdemy" and the partnership between the sorority and St. John's Elementary, Patapsco Middle and Mount Hebron High schools.

Free parking is available in the lot at Main Street and Fells Lane. Information: Mary Pace at (301) 596-3717.
