IMBODEN, Ark. (March 7th, 2024) – Rilee Baldrige, Junior at Sloan-Hendrix High School, was named Friday to receive the inaugural “Citizens Bank Excellence in Citizenship” award.

With this new program, Citizens Bank and Sloan-Hendrix School District aim to recognize students and staff members who are committed to living out the district’s mission to preserve yesterday, excel today and prepare for tomorrow. Staff nominate the award recipients who receive a Certificate of Excellence, a Sloan-Hendrix insulated cup, a Greyhound Paw Print ink pen and keychain and a $25 Walmart gift card from Citizens Bank. Sloan-Hendrix Superintendent Clifford Rorex and Citizens Bank Branch Manager Kimberly Moore presented the award to Rilee among some of her family, students and staff.

Happy and kind to everyone, Rilee is an ideal candidate for the first “Citizens Bank Excellence in Citizenship” award.
