Being the second largest employer in the county, US Bank has a significant presence in Owensboro. Through generosity of local US Bank management, more than 40 Apollo and DCHS students will have an opportunity to enhance their educational experiences throughout their four years in high school.

The kick-off event was held at Brescia University in April 2015. High school students and their families toured campus, feasted on Fetta pizza and got to know each other, their Mentor Teachers, US Bank Mentors and Brescia University students and staff.

US Bank and Brescia Mentors will work with Mentor Teachers throughout the next four years to help first generation students build college resumes and develop skills for success in post-secondary and in the workforce.
