Press Release

(West Columbia, SC) - Congressman Joe Wilson plans to join First Community Bank of Lexington on Monday morning and participate in the “Teach Children to Save Day” program.  This program is a national campaign focused on the importance of teaching young people a lifelong savings habit.  Since 1997, the Teach Children to Save program has brought saving education to more than five million young people across America. Studies have found that students with saving accounts are more likely to attend college than those without one.  With a national unemployment rate of over eight percent for the past three years and a record debt of over fifteen trillion dollars, it is necessary for young people to learn how to become fiscally responsible at an early age.
