First Columbia Receives Community Impact Award

State College, PA – First Columbia Bank & Trust, Co. was recently presented with a Community Impact Award from the Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers (PACB) as part of their Grow Your Community Awards program. The award was granted to First Columbia in response to their 2017 hosting of former NBA player and motivational speaker, Chris Herren, to speak with area youth about the life altering effects of substance abuse. 

The PACB is an organization representing and supporting bankers who “share a resilient commitment to investing time, personnel and financial resources into every facet of their local communities”. The Grow Your Community Awards program recognizes members “whose involvement in Pennsylvania’s towns exceeds normal business practices.” First Columbia is a long standing member of PACB and has consistently been recognized for their contributions to the local community.
