Dixie Shehane has been tapped to work with the Pike County Schools’ Business & Finance academy and lead the day-to-day operations of the Bulldog Academy.
The Academy of Business & Finance was established in 2001. In addition to core academic courses, students take industry-specific classes related to business and banking themes and participate in work-based learning activities. As part of their curriculum, the students participate in the Bulldog Academy, sponsored by Troy Bank & Trust, where they receive financial literacy education and hands-on training in banking fundamentals, including basic teller-related transactions. Upon graduation, they leave with an associate in applied science degree from Enterprise State Community College, in addition to their high school diploma.
“We are so happy that Dixie has decided to stay on and continue working with us in this capacity. The PCHS Business & Finance Academy students will have the benefit of Dixie’s over 41 years of banking experience from which to learn,” said Jeff Kervin, president and CEO of Troy Bank & Trust.
Troy Bank & Trust is a $1.4 billion asset independent community bank headquartered in Troy with 15 locations in six Alabama counties.
