For the 14th straight year, since 2008, Cypress Bank has presented a high-end laptop for the use of Northeast Texas Community College honors students. This year’s Cypress Bank Scholar is Maiko Estrada. He is the son of José, and Maria Estrada of Mount Pleasant. A graduate of Mount Pleasant High School, Estrada was a member of the National Honor Society and Mount Pleasant Band. He already has distinguished himself as a member of Honors Northeast, playing important roles in the upcoming Carroll Shelby film, and becoming a finalist in the Northeast Texas poetry competition.
Cypress Bank Vice President, Barry L. Jones, of the new south Mount Pleasant branch, presented Bennett with this gift (above). Cypress Bankhas five locations: two are in Mount Pleasant with the main bank in Pittsburg. Two other branches are in Lone Star, and Commerce.
