RCS students design Union Bank mascot

Roxboro Community School (RCS) art students Lauren Beam and Justin Oakley designed a mascot for Union Bank and were awarded $1,000 each.

RCS art teacher Anne Bettendorf said, “I would like to thank [Union Bank president and CEO Thomas Combs] Mr. Combs for the amazing opportunity that he provided for our students. Lauren and Justin have gained real world experiences from this project and learned that collaboration has challenges, but the payoff can be great.

"The creation of the mascot was not an easy task, but these two students persevered and Mr. Combs recognized their commitment to the project and awarded both students with a $1,000 scholarship," said Bettendorf.

"I am proud of the hard work that went into the designs and look forward to seeing what the future holds for these RCS seniors.”
