Community State Bank (CSB) is proud to announce that Cary Madrigal (Thompson), captain of Racine County Sheriff’s Office, has been named as the 2022 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.
As the award recipient, Capt. Madrigal has been gifted $1,000 by Community State Bank to donate to a local non-profit or service organization of her choice. She will announce her chosen organization at an upcoming award celebration hosted by the bank.
“To have even been nominated for this award is an honor, and to have won, I am humbled. When I think about our community, I think about so many individuals who are deserving of this award. Frank Lamping was a class of his own. There are really no words to say what it means to be named as a recipient with his name on it,” said Madrigal.
Madrigal is a lifetime resident of Union Grove. She attended school in Union Grove and raised her three children in the same community. In 2001 she heard a radio announcement seeking individuals to join the Racine County Sheriff’s Department. Madrigal applied for the opportunity and has now served as deputy sheriff to multiple divisions, sensitive crimes investigator, sergeant, lieutenant, and currently as captain.
In addition to Madrigal’s career, she has donated her time to support local organizations such as American Cancer Society – Relay for Life, Yorkville 4-H, Sexual Assault Services of Racine (previous board member), and Union Grove Union High School Mental Health Steering Committee (member). Madrigal has also volunteered for several years as the main officer for Community State Bank’s financial literacy program, MyLIFE, at Union Grove High School. She is also a lector and eucharistic minister at St. Mary’s in Kansasville.
“Cary is the epitome of what this award is all about,” said Award Committee Member Julie Moyer. “I had the honor of serving on the award committee in place of my late Father-in-Law and Award Recipient, James Moyer. Cary was the first person that came to mind as a nominee and I know Jim would say the same. She is selfless, humble, and donates so much of her time to support our community. Where there’s a cheesecake, there’s Cary, made with love to support a local cause.”
Madrigal is a talented baker and uses her special skills to help support local fundraisers. Madrigal has baked hundreds of cheesecakes and pies to support local events such as St. Mary’s Pork Chop Dinner and festivals and Tee It Up Fore Ty, which supports local youth with cancer. She has also helped lead and serve at local food stands for several years including Yorkville 4-H and Kiwanis food stands at Racine County Fair.
“The committee votes were unanimous. Community State Bank is honored to present this year’s award to Captain Cary Madrigal for her commitment to serving the community and her dedication towards making our communities great places to live and work. Congratulations Cary! Well deserved,” said CSB Senior Vice President Dave Moyer.
The Community State Bank nominating committee for the 2022 Frank Lamping Community Service Award included: Julie Moyer (stand-in for 2021 Award Recipient, James Moyer), Matthew Newholm, Eugene Bower, Donald Meredith, and Barbara Geschke.
