American Patriot Bank, 710 South Foothills Plaza Drive, is Lanier Elementary School’s partner in the “Adopt-A-School” program. Each year at Christmas, students from Lanier come to the bank to help with getting employees and customers in the Christmas spirit. The students decorate the tree at the bank.
While they are at the bank, Lanier students get to enjoy hot chocolate and cookies, provided by the staff at the bank -- Brenda Pilson, Pam Bradley, Robin McDaniel and Jeremy Loftis.
All the ornaments on the tree are handmade by the students at Lanier Elementary, making the tree very special to the bank and the community.
“We look forward every year to the students coming by to decorate our tree,” said Robin McDaniel. “The students do such a good job, and we truly thank the students and staff at Lanier Elementary.”
