Paducah Bank will host a reception for college students who have returned home for the summer to work. The event will be Tuesday, June 25, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Country Club of Paducah.

“Paducah was a great place to grow up, and I would love the opportunity to give back to my hometown,” said Jarad Key. Jarad was one of many college students who attended the 2011 Paducah Bank reception.

“There are so many reasons why Paducah is great: an entrepreneurial spirit, a small-town feel with big-city opportunities, and a great place to raise a family. I loved growing up in Paducah, and I know it is a place where my career could flourish,” said Sarah Hendley.

That’s just what Paducah Bank managers and many other city leaders and businesses would like to hear more and more young people say.

“We believe one of the most important missions of our community, and Paducah Bank as a part of that community, is to encourage the professional development of our young college graduates so they will strongly consider coming back home to live and work,” says Paducah Bank President Wally Bateman.

In order to give college students insight into the benefits of living and working in Paducah, the bank will host this special reception called Paducah Bank Summer Session on June 25.

“The idea is to connect local college students who are home and working in Paducah for the summer with local professionals and their peers to build a network of Paducah people with similar career goals,” adds Susan Guess, Senior Vice President of Marketing. “We think the best way to share the many features of our great community, from a professional and personal standpoint, is to bring people together so they can talk about their unique perspectives. Our hope would be that every college student who comes home to Paducah and works during the summer would consider making this their permanent career site when they graduate.”
