    Coral Shores Hurricanes Honored

    Last updated 10 months ago

    Community Bank of Florida was proud to sponsor their 14th Annual Scholastic Breakfast for Coral Shores Senior High. The breakfast recognizes the top 20 graduating students and their parents. Although the weather was dreary, the mood inside the banquet facility at the Marriott Key Largo Bay Beach Resort was upbeat.

    Principal David Murphy gave a warm welcome and introductions. He impressed the audience with some information on the senior class: 92% of the students will be going to college! After enjoying breakfast, Robert L. Epling, President and CEO of Community Bank, was introduced as the guest speaker. He spoke to the students, informing them they were always one choice away from changing their lives. He told the audience the story of his first year at college and how his mother helped him get through being home-sick. He said that having his mom there to help him make the right choice was what made his life successful. He then asked the students to take a moment to thank their parents and continue to make the right choices ahead in life. At the end of each breakfast, students were given an inspirational book from Simple Truths; One Choice and the announcement was made they would all be featured in full page ads in the Reporter and the Free Press. Congratulations and good luck to all the students.

    KAPOW!!!

    Last updated 10 months ago

    No we're not using onomatopoeia to sound like super heroes... But our Campbell Square Manager Romey Samtani is a hero to the students at Redondo Elementary! Romey has partnered with "Kids and the Power of Work," a program to teach a local school about a career in banking. For 8 weeks, Romey visited the students and they wrapped up the lessons with a visit to our Campbell Square office. There Romey and his staff taught them what we do on a day-to-day basis and how we help our customers. The kids enjoyed talking to customers who visited the teller line and helping them open new accounts. They were excited to learn how a bank operates and loved their CBF goodies.

    KIDS AND THE POWER OF WORK (KAPOW) is a program of the National Child Labor Committee. It is a national network of business and elementary school partnerships which introduces students to career awareness through professionally developed lessons taught by business volunteers in the classroom. In addition, students make one visit to the workplace to participate in hands-on activities. KAPOW lays a foundation for young students, introducing them to work related concepts and experiences that can be continually reinforced throughout the formative years.

    Career Day at the Charter School at Waterstone

    Last updated 11 months ago

    Community Bank of Florida was excited to visit students from three classes at the Charter School at Waterstone for Career Day. Our VP of Human Resources, Aileen Fundora, taught the students how to 'ace an interview' covering topics like dressing for success and how to shake hands properly. Joining her was Jazmin Corporan, a personal banker here at the Main Office. Jazmin taught the students about banking and the different types of accounts offered. She talked to them about how to save, showed them what a savings deposit slip looked like and explained how saving money earns interest. She also let them know if their parents wanted to open a free account for them to come see her. Afterwards, Aileen raved about how outstanding the students were, stating "they were very engaged, asked great questions and even wrote the answers down for an assignment." Thanks for the invitation Waterstone!
