Editorial: Banking on science

In allying with the St. Louis Science Center, Montgomery Bank has developed an arrangement that should benefit both the people of Southeast Missouri and the bank itself.

Over the three-year partnership, the Sikeston, Mo.-based bank will provide $600,000 to support educational programs at the center along with traveling exhibits that will come to Southeast Missouri.

From the science center's point of view, the partnership will provide service to a region of the state previously unreached.

The bank stands to take in considerable notice from the relationship, and not just in its home area of Southeast Missouri. The bank received naming rights for the center's Exploradome, now known as the Montgomery Bank Exploradome. A large sign on busy Highway 40/Interstate 64 announces the new name, and some 1.2 million people go to the St. Louis Science Center each year.

The bank has six branches in the St. Louis area and another under construction. The five branches in Southeast Missouri soon will be joined by a sixth under construction in Cape Girardeau.

The first of the traveling exhibits is expected to be shown in Southeast Missouri in the fall.
