School Education Programs: Students at area schools increase their financial understanding using eLearning platforms. Decorah/Cresco Bank & Trust Co. partner with Banzai Financial Literacy and CEMARK (How To Do Your Banking and Saving with Mandy & Randy). It is our pleasure to sponsor these programs in our area schools to ensure students learn about the importance of managing money early on in life.
