JACKSON, MS – Origin Bank is awarding three Metro Jackson area schools with a total of $10,000 as part of its Bank on Their Future community initiative.
In keeping with its core purpose to enrich the lives of the people in its community, Origin launched the Bank on Their Future program on September 3, 2019, as a contest for participating schools within a five mile radius of the bank’s new County Line Banking Center at 1059 East County Line Road in Jackson. The 10 participating schools were encouraged to submit votes on Origin’s program website, www.BankOnTheirFuture.com, with the three schools having the greatest number of votes at the close of the contest on October 15, 2019, receiving cash awards. Origin representatives will be on hand to present the cash awards to the first, second and third place schools at scheduled assemblies.
