Rudi Wetzel, May 31, 2019

At Hancock Whitney, our commitment to education and giving back has been part of our legacy for more than a century. Fulfilling educational dreams is one of the ways we work to make an impact in the communities we serve and for those that serve our company: our valued associates.

This year, six dependents of Hancock Whitney associates have been awarded extra funds to help pursue their educational dreams. The Leo W. Seal, Jr. Scholarship Fund, through the Gulf Coast Community Foundation (GCCF), awards the $10,000 grants ($2500 over four years) to the outstanding students selected.

 We are pleased to spotlight each of these remarkable young people who are tomorrow’s leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators. 

Congratulations to all the 2019 recipients and our proud associates.
