Renasant Corporation announced today that during October, the Company is launching a financial mentoring initiative, entitled Understanding Youth, with high schools throughout its markets. The program, specifically developed to educate 10th and 11thgraders on the importance of personal money management, will equip them with skills from real world lessons to help them make wise financial decisions. 

"Planting the seeds for making smart financial decisions in life must begin early. Our Understanding Youth initiative looks to educate today's students and build a foundation upon which they can use to make wise choices in all future money-related situations," said Renasant Small Business and Community Development Director, Tracey Morant Adams. "At Renasant, we are focused on meeting the banking needs of each community we serve, and through our Understanding Youth initiative, meeting the needs of our future clients as well."

Through the Understanding Youth initiative, participants will gain a greater understanding of financial management, saving for the future, maintaining good credit and building banking relationships. Renasant proudly engages in outreach initiatives to build stronger communities and address the banking needs of its clients, to meet home ownership desires and facilitate small business development.
