September 24, 2018 – For over 15 years, SouthEast Bank has sponsored Bryan students, investing in the community by allowing students to receive a scholarship. On Sept. 12, 2018, several of Bryan’s students who had received the scholarship had the opportunity to meet with SouthEast Bank representative Katie Park.
Park expressed that SouthEast bank has specifically and consistently chosen Bryan because of how passionate they are about investing in the community and in education. She noted, “As a company, we want to support schools in our network. Our two biggest philanthropic outreaches are education based and community based, and Bryan embodies both of those needs.”
Bryan students Gary Tourner, Karis Powell, Christin Williams and Tori Burnette expressed their gratitude and appreciation to Park and SouthEast Bank for the scholarship. Burnette explained how much joy she felt when she found out she was a recipient of the scholarship and how grateful she was for the opportunity.
As an institution, SouthEast Bank has been committed to investing in education at all levels. Park explained further, “We have local banks in Dayton, so we wanted to develop a relationship with Bryan because it is such a great school.” SouthEast Bank in Dayton is located at 3995 Rhea County Highway, in Dayton, TN.
