At Regions Bank fans and graduates of several historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) can now show their school spirit every time they make a purchase with a Regions CheckCard.

“These new CheckCards represent an expansion of our ongoing HBCU partnership,” said Tom Brooks, head of Regions Cards and Payments. “Regions is proud to support the pride and passion associated with HBCUs – not only in our ongoing involvement with the schools, but also in letting their fans and graduates show their support, too.”
The new CheckCards are available now online via the Regions YourPix Studio(SM).
