IBC Bank-Eagle Pass awarded $4,000 in scholarships to deserving students from Del Rio, Eagle Pass, and Uvalde area high schools. The need-based scholarships are awarded to high school seniors who have demonstrated a commitment to IBC’s “Do More” philosophy.
IBC Bank awarded $153,000 in scholarships to deserving high school seniors across Texas and Oklahoma in honor of Antonio R. Sanchez, Sr., founder of IBC Bank. Born into a humble family, Sanchez was a strong supporter of making higher education available to students interested in bettering their lives.
“Community banks are only as successful as the communities they serve,” explained Hector J. Cerna, IBC Bank-Eagle Pass president and CEO. “College is the next step for these students in their journey to becoming successful, engaged future citizens. These scholarships will help them reach their goals.”
IBC Bank began the A.R. Sanchez, Sr. Memorial Scholarship Program more than two decades ago. Since then over $2 million in scholarships have been awarded to students across South Texas and Oklahoma.
