“Cardinal Bank is committed to promoting financial literacy, and Teach Children to Save Day is one exciting event that allows our employees to reach out to hundreds of young students in our communities,” said F. Kevin Reynolds, President, Cardinal Bank. “Research shows that kids who save are more likely to attend college. We hope our efforts will motivate and inspire students to take an important step in learning their financial ABCs, which in turn can help them achieve their financial goals and dreams.”

“Today was really special when the President of Cardinal Bank came to our school,” said a kindergarten student from Armstrong Elementary School in Reston, Virginia. “I learned about saving money and not always buying stuff.”
