Paris ISD – News

Donations received from First Federal Community Bank.

Superintendent Paul Jones accepted a $3,646.97 check from First Federal Community Bank’s Paris Wildcat Spirit Card Program. Lisa Butler, Assistant Vice President of Deposit Services of First Federal, presented the check.

When bank customers use their Wildcat Card as a credit card in a PIN-less transaction, First Federal sets aside a percentage of the transaction as a donation to the school district.

Jones accepted the donation and said, “Thanks to our many friends and fans for using these cards to support Paris ISD. First Federal has donated over $28,000 to the district since the program began in 2019.”

You can order Wildcat Debit Cards at any First Federal Community Bank location.
