Financial Literacy Training for TFA Teachers


Financial Literacy Training for TFA Teachers

TEACH FOR AMERICA (or TFA) is an organization in which college graduates apply to teach in public schools (mostly low income areas) across the country.  TFA’s mission is to enlist, develop, and mobilize as many as possible of our nation’s most promising future leaders to grow and strengthen the movement for educational equity and excellence.

Benchmark’s very own Corby Ferrell, Mary Anne Dunne and Thomas Gresham attended a TFA group meeting of 200 new TFA teachers who are moving to the DFW area to discuss budget, credit reports, loans, and possibly mortgages. For many of the new teachers, this is a first job and they need some guidance in the financial area.


Hooray for Summer!!!


Hooray for Summer!!!

We had a winning day at our summer kick-off Benchmark Block Party!  The taco truck filled our tummies as we all played family-fun games and enjoyed cold refreshments. Thank you to all who came out and partook in the fun! Here comes summer!

Home Loan Division


Benchmark Bank is pleased to announce that we are now

available for all of your mortgage needs. Customers identify

Benchmark Bank with superior service, trust and integrity. Those

same cornerstones are destined to become synonymous with

the Benchmark Bank Home Loan Division. Home loans were

formerly offered by our wholly-owned subsidiary, Affiliated

Mortgage Company, and we will continue to provide our

exemplary service to those customers. President Bill Brewer

states, “we believe that adding home loans to our existing suite

of personal banking products will offer our customers greater

convenience while enjoying the personalized service that they

have come to expect from Benchmark Bank.”

We will be here to answer any questions you may have. Please

visit us at or call us at


As always, we appreciate your business.
