Community State Bank is proud to announce that Tom Czerniak has been named as the 2020 Frank Lamping Community Service Award recipient. The award, inspired by Union Grove native Frank Lamping, was created to acknowledge and celebrate a community member who exemplifies positivity, selflessness, leadership, and inspires others to give back to the community. A nominating committee assembled by Community State Bank selected Czerniak, the former Chief of the Union Grove Yorkville Fire & Rescue and retired Union Grove High School teacher, for the award.
“Tom has been a key leader in our community for over 50 years and has dedicated his life to community service,” said CSB Senior Vice President, David Moyer. “Much like Frank, Tom is a great example of how to inspire others and give back to the community. The nominating committee saw him as an excellent choice, and we couldn’t be happier to present him the award.”
As the award recipient, Czerniak has been gifted $1,000 by Community State Bank to donate to a local non-profit or service organization of his choice. He will announce his chosen organization at an upcoming award celebration hosted by the bank.
