Crockett Students become Happy State Kids Bankers 

Crockett scholars visited Happy State Bank to interview for jobs as tellers at the Happy State Kids Bank. The Kids Bank program helps students learn the importance of saving and has been incorporated as part of the financial literacy curriculum at Crockett and Gateway. 

Tabatha Smith, Counselor at Crockett elementary and sponsor for the Kids Bank stated, “I believe one of the greatest gifts we can teach our children is financial literacy. This prepares them to be successful adults. Hands-on banking gives children the opportunity to experience real-world banking that they do not experience in the classroom.”

 Students may make deposits at the Crockett/Gateway campus on designated bank days. The first bank day is September 28th. To set up a savings account for students in 1st - 4th grade, visit Borger Happy State Bank or go to
