WNB Financial was recently recognized by The Minnesota Bankers Association (MBA) for their community involvement. To honor and recognize their involvement, the MBA created the Community Champion recognition program. WNB Financial is one of thirty-five Community Champions that worked with hundreds of organizations in their communities, providing funding, volunteers, materials, supplies, or food for their neighbors. Recipients of the recognition range in size from small community banks to large banks with multiple branches.
WNB Financial has announced Erica Jerowski, Senior Vice President and Chief Credit Officer, as the recipient of its 2018 fourth quarter Community PRIDE Award. Awarded quarterly by the Bank’s Public Relations Committee, Community PRIDE Awards recognize WNB employees for exceptional volunteer service to programs, organizations, and initiatives that contribute to the strength and vitality of the communities served. This includes volunteering efforts made during and outside of work hours.
