In January of 1991 The Bank of Fincastle opened the first Botetourt County School Bank at Breckinridge Elementary School. Our vision was to implement a program that would give students the opportunity to experience, first hand, how a bank operates. Students learned how to open a savings account, deposit money and calculate interest earned. Today, all seven Botetourt County elementary schools have banking programs.
The Bank of Fincastle serves Breckinridge, Cloverdale and Colonial Elementary Schools. Each student that participates in the StudentSave program has their own savings account, which they can access to make deposits and withdrawals.
