My name is Jordan Knight and I am our Branch Manager at US Bank’s Bearden location. I joined the bank 5 years ago out of college at one of our grocery store locations and have really enjoyed the banking industry. The Arc visited my branch this past March which gave me the opportunity to learn more about the program. It also allowed me to educate participants on some banking basics. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the 8 participants that were able to visit my branch. They received a mini tour where they watched our tellers, bankers and even got to see their first bank vault (and of course grab some free suckers).
I hope everyone that attended walked away with a new experience. It certainly was fun getting to know the each of them and learning about their favorite activities. We discussed how important saving money is and how it connects with their favorite hobbies. Taking your lunch to work a few times a week really adds up. I look forward to more events in the future with The Arc and hope they can visit the branch again soon.
