Queensborough Awards Local High School Graduate

Queensborough recently awarded $500 to Lillian Grace Howard, a 2021 graduate of Washington County High School in Sandersville, for her essay on the importance of community banking. Lillian is the daughter of Amy and Michael Howard. 

The Julian & Jan Hester Memorial Scholarship is a statewide contest funded and presented by the Community Bankers Association of Georgia. As a sponsoring bank, Queensborough encourages local high school seniors to apply for the statewide competition, but also awards one local student annually with a $500 scholarship. 

“Queensborough is honored to promote the Julian & Jan Hester Memorial Scholarship and proud of the students who take the time to apply,” says Bill Easterlin, Queensborough President & CEO.
