PHOENIX (PRWEB) June 2, 2006 –
Northeast Georgia Bank has partnered with NextStudent Inc., a Phoenix-based premier education funding company, to offer a complete portfolio of educational lending products and services.
Northeast Georgia Bank will introduce the new program in each of its individual locations. Interested customers will have several options of obtaining information including in-branch collateral and online access to scholarship and student loan information.
“We developed this partnership because it offers new options to our customers who are college age or have children thinking about attending college,” said Scott Mershon, Marketing Manager (Bank Channel). “Also, as a member of the community, it re-enforces our commitment to a better future for our children.

It is what they have come to expect in their past dealings with the bank, and to deliver anything less would not be fulfilling our commitment to this partnership.”
