“I was interested in banking with Troy Bank & Trust,” said Shelby Pyle, senior at Pike Liberal Arts School. “I really wanted some food, and the door prizes are great. I was excited.”

Students were able to win prizes from participating vendors, and they could also win prizes for participating in the activities at the event. Some of the vendors provided free services to demonstrate what they offer. The DJ even had them out of their seats, creating a makeshift dance floor, doing group dances like the Cupid Shuffle.

“I came because it’s one of the few things I can do as a senior,” Shade Speighner, senior at Goshen High School. “I had a great time.”

“Troy Bank & Trust was really excited to host this for our graduating seniors from around the area,” said Dianna Lee, marketing and public relations officer for Troy Bank & Trust. “Not only does it introduce them to Troy Bank & Trust, but also to some other vendors and retailers in the area. We are excited to do it, excited to have them here and hope their graduation season goes well.”
