Colony Bank Leadership Academy-$1,000 Scholarship

Published on: 8/28/2020

​​​Colony Bank has created the Colony Leadership Academy, an initiative designed to create an environment that nurtures potential young leaders and encourages students to recognize their own potential and develop their leadership skills. The program, which is available in all of Colony’s markets, is available to high school juniors during the last half of their junior year through the first half of their senior year. The curriculum encourages students to become familiar with all aspects of their community and to develop skills enabling them to take an active leadership role in their community.  ​To be chosen for the program, a student must submit an application and meet qualifications that include a minimum GPA of 3.0 or equivalent. Each student applying for the program must be nominated by a community member, have their application approved by parents and their school's administrator and supply two personal references. Nominations can be submitted from August 26th through September 25th, after which applications will be sent to students nominated. In November, the names of the 30 successful applicants will be announced. Classes will take place quarterly from February 2021 through graduation in November 2021.  Upon completion of the program, participants will receive a $1,000 scholarship to the college/university of their choice.​ Additional information may be found in the press release below.
