The Farmers and Merchants Bank “Banking on a Wildcat” for the week on January 22 goes to Riah Latta.  Teachers had this to say about Riah:  “Riah always does what is asked of her.  She stays on top of her school work and excels in her academics.  She works hard on the court and in the classroom, and it pays off.  One of her greatest attributes is that she is polite and kind to others.”  Congratulations Riah!
