Bank of Hays Supports Fort Hays State University
Over the next five years, Bank of Hays, Hanston State Bank, Farmers' State Bank of Jetmore and Bank of Lewis have committed to over $62,000 in scholarships and support of the new Robbins Banking Institute at Fort Hays State University. We believe Fort Hays State University is an integral part of Western Kansas and vital to our area to support higher learning for our young students. Our banking group supports multiple scholarships to students studying banking, students in the college of business and students from Hodgeman and Edwards counties. Fort Hays State University has established the Robbins Banking Institute to serve the banking community of Kansas by expanding the professional workforce available to Kansas banks. The institute will recruit traditional age, on-campus students in the Kansas' most complete banking curriculum. It will also offer distance learning coursework and credentials to place work- bound banking employees.
