This is a news release from the Grand Bank

A Petal student has earned the Grand Bank Edward J. "Ed" Langton Scholarship.

Ann Hinton's determination to succeed and desire to help others in need earned her the $1,000 award for her college education.

The scholarship began in 2004 by the employees of Grand Bank in honor of their CEO, Ed Langton. Each year a committee of Grand Bank employees select a student based on application solicited from local schools, youth organizations, and the bank's website.

Hinton plans to attend Jones County Junior College next year to pursue a career in Medicine.

Grand Bank is locally owned with offices in Hattiesburg, Petal and Flowood.
