Impact Bank sponsors the STUDENT OF THE MONTH program, participated in annually by WHS, WMS, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Lincoln, and Eisenhower Schools. Each facility has their own criteria for their monthly selections (Sep. thru Apr.) and also their own criteria for the selection of Student of the Year. Impact Bank enjoys sponsoring this program, which provides monthly posters to each school, a drive-thru poster at the bank here in Wellington monthly, and also a nice gift basket in May to each of the "6" Students of the Year.
