There are so many reasons why Paducah is great,” said one of the students at the 2013 Paducah Bank Summer Session for college students. Her list included Paducah’s entrepreneurial spirit, small-town feel with big
city opportunities, and family friendliness. We couldn’t agree more.
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,” said Joe Framptom, Chairman and CEO.
In order to give college students insight into the benefits of living and working in Paducah, the bank hosted this special reception for the third consecutive year.
“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,” added 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 college students who come home to Paducah and work during the summer would consider making this their permanent career site when they graduate.”
