Hometown Hero Program:

 

BankFive began the Hometown Hero Program in 1993 to recognize individuals in our community for heroic deeds, acts of kindness, and selfless efforts to make our community a better place in which to live and work. In January 1996, local radio station WSAR partnered with BankFive to offer the program jointly. Also in early 1996, a Hometown Hero Selection Committee, made up of community leaders and representatives, was formed. The committee reviews nominations on a quarterly basis. To submit a nomination, ask for a form at any of our 13 branch locations or follow the link below to submit an online nomination form.
