A Charles City-based bank is asking you to “Don’t be a “spendster” and listen to Spencer” when it comes to choosing your bank.
College athletes are now allowed to pursue endorsements and Iowa Hawkeye quarterback Spencer Petras is a new financial education spokesman for First Security Bank. Petras said, “My focus is on financial education. My parents taught me at a young age the value of saving money, and I want to pass that on to the next generation.”
First Security Marketing Manager Matt Bradley said, “We’ve watched Spencer interact with young fans. He’s incredibly talented on the field, but also incredibly gracious with his time and attention.”
Petras, whose second-ranked Hawkeyes host Purdue this Saturday, is expected to visit local classrooms across north Iowa after the football season is over; spreading his message of financial responsibility in person and meeting local students.
First Security Bank is headquartered in Charles City and has 12 branch locations in the area.
