IBC Bank Honors 13 High School Seniors With The A.R. Sanchez, Sr. Memorial Scholarship

        (July 12, 2022) LAREDO, Texas - IBC Bank-Laredo remains focused on the future of the communities it serves by continuing its support of higher education by awarding area students with the A.R. Sanchez, Sr. Memorial Scholarship as they venture into college and start a new chapter of their lives. Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrated a "Do More" attitude and leadership in student and community affairs throughout their years in high school.


         Born into a humble family, Antonio R. Sanchez, Sr., the namesake of the scholarship award and the founder of IBC Bank, was a strong supporter of making higher education available to those interested in bettering their lives. Sanchez's commitment to the power of learning lives on in the A.R. Sanchez Scholarship, which is bestowed annually upon deserving high school seniors in the communities IBC serves.


"Awarding the A.R. Sanchez, Sr. Memorial Scholarship is an important part of IBC Bank's ‘We Do More' philosophy," IBC Bank-Laredo Chairman and CEO Dennis E. Nixon said. "Through these scholarships, we are contributing to the development of our future leaders and to the communities where they shall enhance the quality of life. We are extremely honored to assist in the pursuit of their higher education goals and success."
