The Bank of Tescott, a member of Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLBank) of Topeka since 1997, was honored at FHLBank of Topeka’s annual Management Conference on April 25, 2013, in Overland Park, for outstanding community leadership and strong financial performance.
Headquartered in Tescott, The Bank of Tescott is a $300 million institution that serves Tescott, Salina, Lincoln and Lindsborg.
“I want to congratulate The Bank of Tescott for receiving FHLBank of Topeka’s 2013 Community Leader Award,” said FHLBank President and CEO Andy Jetter. “The work The Bank of Tescott does in their community is the epitome of what being a community bank is all about. I’m honored to have The Bank of Tescott as part of our membership.”
Each year, FHLBank of Topeka honors a member institution from one of the four states that they serve—Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
The Community Leader Award included a $2,000 donation by FHLBank of Topeka to an organization of the winning institution’s choice. The Bank of Tescott chose to split the award among organizations serving its communities–$500 went to Tescott Lions Club to be used toward a new memorial park project initiated by Ottawa County Leadership participants; $500 each went to the unrestricted grant funds of Post Rock Community Foundation, serving Lincoln County, Greater Salina Community Foundation, and Smoky Valley Community Foundation, serving the Lindsborg area. These gifts will support ongoing community projects.
The award presentation also included a video tribute to The Bank of Tescott showcasing how they help individuals, businesses and nonprofit organizations in their community. The video is available at www.fhlbtopeka.com.
