 ‘Macdonellville’ Minitropolis® Bank Employees Receive Training from IBC Bank 

IBC Bank Chairman and CEO Dennis Nixon fields questions from student "employees" of IBC Bank's Macdonellville Minitropolis® branch during a tour of IBC Bank's main branch at 1200 San Bernardo Ave. on Oct. 19.


Bank student employees from Macdonellville, a minitropolis® at Macdonell Elementary in Laredo, toured IBC Bank’s main Laredo location on San Bernardo Avenue on Oct. 19 to receive their first training. The students learned banking fundamentals they will utilize at IBC Bank's Macdonellville branch and met IBC Bank leadership, including Chairman and CEO Dennis Nixon. IBC Bank worked with school officials to develop the concept for the Macdonellville minitropolis, which functions as a city within a school, and launched it in Nov. 2009. Each year, student employees receive training from IBC Bank. Macdonellville features a city council, sheriff’s department, post office, recycling center, farmers market, IBC Bank, and other businesses that are run by students. The fundamental goal of IBC Bank’s minitropolis program is to help students gain an understanding of financial concepts while learning the value of leadership and responsibility that will set them up for success as adults.
