Zions Bank Press Release
Price, Utah; November 30, 2017 — Mont Harmon Middle School eighth-grader Lindsey Jespersen received a $100 scholarship savings account as a regional winner of the winter drawing through Zions Bank’s Pays for A’s program.
Pays for A’s rewards students who put in the effort to make their grades count. Carmen Humphrey, assistant manager of the Price financial center, surprised Jespersen with her win during a presentation at the school.
Jespersen was entered into the drawing by bringing her report card to Zions Bank and was paid for every “A” she received. More than 1,400 students entered the winter drawing throughout Utah and Idaho.
“We know that it takes extra time and effort to earn high marks, so we’re proud to recognize the achievements of students like Lindsey through the Pays for A’s program,” said Humphrey. “Our goal is to help students focus on schoolwork and motivate them to earn good grades.”
Pays for A’s is open to all Utah and Idaho students ages 12 to 18. Students can participate by bringing their most current term-end report card into any Zions Bank location. Students do not need a Zions Bank account to participate. They’ll receive $1 per “A” deposited into their savings account, or 50 cents per “A” if they opt for cash. For each “A” on their report cards, students are entered into a drawing to win one of 150 regional scholarship prizes each worth $100 and one grand prize worth $1,000 in each state.
