Summer Intern Program at Bank of Lancaster

03-Jul-2017 This summer Bank of Lancaster has seven college students working in the Bank’s Northern Neck branches. Caroline Beck, Jillian Jett and Kelli Tignor are working in the lower Northern Neck offices and Kelsey Dawson, Amanda Fallin, Jessica Snead, and Jenifer West are stationed in the upper Northern Neck offices.


Bank of Lancaster’s Susan Pittman enjoyed taking the Bank’s summer interns to lunch at The Golden Eagle, Irvington. These college students are working in the Bank’s lower Northern Neck offices. (l to right) Pittman, Caroline Beck, Jillian Jett, Kelli Tignor.

Susan S. Pittman, Senior Vice President and Market Leader for the Northern Neck states, “we are excited to have these young people with us for the summer. They are learning valuable lessons about the banking industry and the work place, and they are a tremendous help to us as we provide coverage for staff vacations during the busy summer months.

“As a part of our intern program, Hazel Farmer, Senior Vice President and Consumer Education Director for our Bank, and I held a working lunch for the three students who are stationed in the lower NN branches. It was great to hear input from these young people about services and products they value, as well as hear first-hand experiences about orientation and day-to-day operations.”

Caroline Beck, a graduate of Lancaster High School, will be a sophomore at the University of Virginia this fall. Her major is Human Biology and her career goal is to be a Pediatric Physical Therapist.

Jillian Jett is a 2017 graduate of Northumberland High School. She will be attending Lynchburg College in the fall to study pediatric nursing. She hopes one day to work in an oncology department within a children’s hospital.

Kelli Tignor, a graduate of Lancaster High School, will be a senior this fall at Christopher Newport University. She is working towards her degree in Accounting and Leadership Studies and states, “Since this is my senior year, I’m thinking seriously about my career. Working at the Bank has given me that extra experience I needed, and the knowledge and skills I have accumulated are going to be a great help to me. I want to move back to my hometown after college and live and work here. Maybe it’s the people, my family or the smell of the Chesapeake Bay; but I’ve always known that I wanted to return ‘home’ after college and make my life in the Northern Neck.”

Pittman states, “it is rewarding to see our local youth pursuing such wonderful goals and it is certainly an added bonus when they want to return home and become a productive part of life here in our Northern Neck. We are honored and proud to provide these young people with opportunities for employment and help them on their journey to careers and life decisions.”
