(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.
