"Sammy's Big Dream" a Reality in Arkansas 
 
Sammy's
The New Year is off to a good start with a new project.
 
We have partnered with Los Angeles-based Sammy Rabbit and the Garret Planning Network to bring a segment of "Dream Big Read" financial education to Arkansas next month. 
 
Every elementary school library in the state will receive a copy of "Sammy's Big Dream" to help second graders develop saving habits. We are reaching out to local media and celebrities in each corner of the state to stage "read-alouds" during America Saves Week in late February.
 
The initiative expands Economics Arkansas's position as a personal finance educator and thought-leader.

ABA Campaign Underway
Remembering Longtime Board Member Bill Holmes Bill Holmes
 
Arkansas bankers have been among our most consistent and generous supporters since our early days in 1962.
 
The Arkansas Bankers Association has played a key role in our annual letter-writing campaign, led with enthusiasm by longtime ABA chief executive and EA board member Bill Holmes. We fondly remember Bill who died in December after an illness. He showed unwavering zeal for economic education and gladly signed thousands of letters on our behalf, asking fellow bankers to support Economics Arkansas.
 
ABA logoHe would be thrilled to know that his ABA successor, Lorrie Trogden, and the current ABA chairman, Cathy Owen, are carrying on the tradition by spearheading the 2019-19 ABA campaign.
 
If you are a banker and have contributed to this campaign, thank you. You are playing a key role in increasing the economic and financial literacy in your communities.
