The Murray Bank Assists On Slam Dunk for Local School Systems


Murray, KY – During a special presentation between games at The Murray Bank Crosstown Classic, The Murray Bank proudly presented each school superintendent with a donation in the amount of $10,000. These donations were made on behalf of all The Murray Bank Spirit Debit Card holders.

“At The Murray Bank, we are committed to making a meaningful and positive contribution to the individuals, families, businesses and schools within our community,” said Bob Hargrove, President and CEO of The Murray Bank.  “As the only locally owned bank in our community, we believe it is our responsibility to be heavily involved with both of our local school systems and came up with a creative way to not only help, but allow our customers and fans to have a way to show their school spirit and earn money for their prospective school system at the same time.”

With this year’s donation, The Murray Bank Spirit Debit Card donation totals over $96,000 total, with $48,000 going to each school.

“These donations over the years have made a significant difference in what we can provide our students,” said Bob Rogers, Murray Independent School District Superintendent.  “Money is extremely tight and this donation allows us to do or have things we ordinarily couldn’t have.  We are very appreciative.”

“In these difficult financial times for school districts across the state, we are extremely blessed to have the support and unique partnership with The Murray Bank that allows us to continue to offer the very best to our student athletes who are involved in a wide array of activities,” said Tres Settle, Calloway County School District Superintendent.  “We look forward to continuing this partnership in years to come, and would like to recognize The Murray Bank for their generous investment in the students of Calloway County High School.”

The Murray Bank offers two Spirit Debit Cards, a Laker card and a Tiger card.  Each Spirit Card features the logo of the school of choice on the face of the card.  Customers of The Murray Bank can choose which school themed card they would like to carry and with each swipe of their Spirit Debit Card, The Murray Bank will make a donation directly to the school districts.
