     When it comes to community banking, Florida Parishes Bank knows it is more than checking and savings accounts.

    “Community banking is being engaged with our community each and every day,” said FPB Chief Executive Officer Ronnie Fugarino. “I am extremely proud of our team coming together in October to raise funds and awareness in the continued fight to beat breast cancer.”

     As a result of the bank’s efforts, FPB was able to present a check for $10,000 to the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center.

    “Over the years, FPB has really gone over and above in their efforts to help fight breast cancer,” said Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center Program Manager Tammy Asmus. “They are a true champion for our community.”

    Each of the bank’s seven locations participated in weekly breast cancer awareness events during the month of October.

   “In addition to our regular Pinktober awareness activities, FPB donated $50 for every new account opening during the month of October,” said FPB Vice President and Business Development Officer Theresa Harris. “It was our way of honoring those in our community who are breast cancer survivors and those who are fighting this disease.”

    FPB started actively participating in Breast Cancer Awareness Month in 2013 when FPB employee Kama Lobue was being treated for breast cancer.

   “I am proud to be a breast cancer survivor and I am so proud that my bank supports this cause each year. FPB is a true family bank,” said Lobue.

Florida Parishes Bank Help SLU Students Win Big at Conference

Bank staff provides information students need for competition

[HAMMOND] – Helping students with their education is important to Florida Parishes Bank. This past semester representatives from FPB worked closely with four Southeastern Louisiana University students to prepare them for the Conference of State Bank Supervisors competition. The students placed in the top 10 against 33 teams.

The FPB Staff provided the students with the bank management’s strengths and weaknesses as well as the board succession plans. The students then analyzed this information and developed a written report and 10-minute video summarizing its strengths and weaknesses.

FPB Chief Executive Officer Ronnie Fugarino enjoyed helping the finance team reach their goal.

 “I am proud to see these students succeed at this prestigious competition. They worked very hard and truly deserve this honor,” he said.

Despite the stiffness of the competition, the Southeastern students were successful against other finance teams from universities around the country. The real-world experience they gained from working with the staff at Florida Parishes Bank was unlike anything they have learned within a classroom environment.
