Bank of Sun Prairie earns award for financial education

On November 16 at an event held in Wisconsin Dells, the Wisconsin Bankers Foundation (WBF) honored Bank of Sun Prairie with the Foundation’s Excellence in Financial Education Award for the bank’s organization-wide dedication to financial education, according to a press release from the bank. Two of their team members, Assistant Vice President Senior Branch Manager Pam Blattner and Trust Assistant Pamela Sanderson, were also recognized for their efforts in promoting financial literacy to Wisconsin’s consumers and each received WBF Certificates of Recognition for their individual efforts in advancing financial literacy.

As the nonprofit arm of the Wisconsin Bankers Association (WBA), WBF’s mission is to promote financial literacy and capability to the public and to broaden consumer empowerment in the financial services industry through research, education, grants, and scholarships. During the 2022–2023 fiscal year, more than 360 bankers across the state participated in financial education-focused presentations helping to reach more than 24,700 consumers of all ages. This outstanding effort is underscored in the efforts of the Bank of Sun Prairie team.

“Throughout Wisconsin, bankers go above and beyond in their commitment to their communities,” WBF Chair Rose Oswald Poels said in a statement. “We thank the team at Bank of Sun Prairie — with special thanks to Pam and Pamela — for their outstanding work in helping individuals and families to build foundational financial skills.”
