First Cherokee State Bank Donates $10,000 for Reinhardt College's A DAY Program
First Cherokee State Bank recently presented $10,000 to Reinhardt College for student scholarships. Each spring the bank dedicates proceeds from an annual golf tournament at Big Canoe to A DAY, which helps to fund a grant program for Cherokee County students. The bank has been donating to Reinhardt since its inception in 1988 and has donated $10,000 each year since 2002.

"First Cherokee State Bank is committed to their home community," said Dr. Isherwood. "Their support of Reinhardt College over the years has enabled numerous 'hometown' students to pursue their dream of attending Reinhardt. We appreciate their support and their giving spirit."
