At Citizens State Bank, we’ve always believed in the power of community and education. On September 14, 2023, we took another step in our commitment to supporting these values by sponsoring the Power of One program fundraiser, organized by the University of Detroit Mercy Law School. The Power of One program is a transformative initiative that aims to help law school graduates achieve their dreams by passing the bar exam on their first attempt.
As sponsors of the program, we contributed $3,000 to a cause that aligns perfectly with our vision of empowering individuals to achieve their goals. The Power of One program is nothing short of inspiring, and its results are a testament to the dedication and hard work put in by both the graduates and the program itself.
Since the launch of the Power of One, an incredible 100% of the graduates who completed the program’s key benchmarks successfully passed the bar exam on their first attempt. These benchmarks are designed to provide essential preparation and support, including taking the Bar Exam Strategies course, completing 85% of an approved commercial bar prep course, finishing 1,200 AdaptiBar questions, and participating in the faculty mentoring program.
This achievement isn’t just about passing an exam; it’s about opening doors to opportunities and fulfilling lifelong dreams. It’s about creating a brighter future for graduates who are dedicated to the pursuit of justice and the rule of law.
Citizens State Bank is proud to stand alongside the University of Detroit Mercy Law School and the Power of One program, supporting the next generation of legal professionals in their journey toward success. We understand that education is a cornerstone of progress, and it’s our privilege to contribute to a program that empowers graduates to become confident, capable attorneys who can make a difference in their communities.
Our commitment to education and community support remains unwavering. The Power of One program is an embodiment of the values we hold dear, and we look forward to witnessing the continued success of its graduates as they embark on their legal careers. Together, we are shaping a brighter future, one graduate at a time.
