Warriors celebrate homecoming week with
First National Bank and Trust Company
 First National Bank Assistant Manager Kayce
Hauser made it her goal to celebrate two big days of
the year with Pioneer School last week: homecoming
and the kindergarten’s 100th day of school.
 Superintendent Mike Sparks welcomed First
National Bank President and CEO John Gorton along
with Assistant Manager Kayce Hauser, Senior Vice
President Mike Van Sickle (far left), Multibanker
Tosha Hocutt and daughter Kinslee on the basketball
court before the homecoming game on January 31 to
announce the school receiving a donation in honor of
FNBT’s Team Spirit Debit Card Program.
 “Warrior fans can help the bank’s program raise
funds for Pioneer Schools just by swiping their team
spirit card,” Hocutt said. “My daughter and I loved
celebrating homecoming activities even more by
sharing the big donation announcement to the fans.”
 The Warriors received $1,077 of the funds from the
program out of $48,000 from the entire program.
 “We had a wonderful time visiting with customers
during homecoming and my Eagle bankers enjoyed
working the concession stand too,” Hauser said.
 The kindergarteners continued the homecoming
celebration by dressing as elderly people on February
4 for the 100th day of school.
 First National Bank Assistant Manager Kayce
Hauser and Digital Marketing Specialist Katey
Graham brought popcorn and piggy banks to the kids
earlier Monday morning.
 Hauser spoke to the
kindergarteners about
the bank’s well-known
mascot, Kurtis the
Dinosaur and how saving
money is important
the older they get. She
showed the kids what
100 pennies look like
along with 100 one-
dollar bills.
