Homeland Community Bank Youth Advisory Board
Homeland Community Bank started their youth advisory board seven years ago to introduce students in the seventh and eighth grades to banking, Personal Finance and what is expected of a board member. Their main goal is to introduce banking to the students and encourage them to consider it as a possible career for the future.
To be selected as a member you must be a seventh grader and write an essay with the title “What Banking Means to me” and turn it into you Language Arts Teacher. The top 4 or 5 papers from each team will be given to the bank committee to choose the finalists. These students will participate in an interview to choose the winner.
The board will meet after school 4 times during the school year. Students from all county schools will be given the opportunity to be a member. The students will learn about banking and what is expected of a board member. These students must have support from their parents’ as they must be brought and picked up from Homeland Community Bank for each meeting. Each member will serve two years on the board graduating off after finishing their eighth grade year of school. The best part of being a board member is you will receive a board fee or payment for each meeting you attend. With this money you can open a Youth Advisory Savings Account that has special incentives for the member.
Meeting times are announced since there is not a set time. Meetings are held once a month or each grading period on the day after report cards go home to check service hours and review report cards.
Students must hold a 3.2 GPA, complete twelve service hours during the school year (August through May), and have good behavior.
The purpose of the Beta Club is to promote the ideals of honesty, service, morality, ethical conduct, and leadership among middle school students; to reward meritorious achievement, and to encourage and assist students in continuing their education after high school.
Meetings will be announced. FCCLA usually meets once a month.

We want to invite you to consider joining the VEX Robotics Club. In the VEX Robotics Competition teams of students are given the challenge to design and build a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. You will learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications, and more. Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state, and national levels and culminate at the VEX Robotics World Championship each April!
Warren County Middle school will be competing in the VEX IQ Challenge. This challenges both elementary and middle school students with exciting, open-ended robotics and research project challenges that enhance their science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills through hands-on, student-centered learning.
We will meet on Tuesday or Thursday one day a week preparing for competition. We will design, build and program our robot while keeping a journal of our designs and progress throughout the process. If you are interesting in engineering and robotics get you an application at the sign in desk and turn it in to Mrs. Britton or Mrs. Lokey in the Related Arts Building with your $30 membership fee. Hope to see you at our next meeting.
