As part of our involvement in youth and leadership, Hills Bank has sponsored the Youth Salute Leadership Awards for 25th year. The purpose of this program is to recognize high school seniors for academic excellence, leadership, and service to their school and community. Youth Salute is a part of a national recognition program coordinated by the National Council on Youth Leadership. Almost 300 students from 17 area high schools including City High, Clear Creek Amana, English Valleys, Highland, Hillcrest Academy, Iowa Valley, Lisbon, Liberty High, Lone Tree, Mid-Prairie, Mount Vernon, Regina, Solon, Washington (IA), West Branch, West High, and Williamsburg were honored for their academic achievement and leadership contributions. Students were selected by their high school faculty to receive the prestigious award on September 8th.
