Doylestown, PA, June 11, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- President and CEO of Penn Community Bank, Jeane M. Coyle, recently was honored with the Kelton Service Award for her contributions to public service over the past year through the United Way of Bucks County.
Coyle’s service has included helping United Way staff manage a shift in focus to a collective impact model and overseeing a growing United Way campaign – all while managing the unification of two local banks to create Bucks County’s leading independent, mutual financial organization, Penn Community Bank.
Coyle credited her commitment to nonprofit service in Bucks County to a culture engrained in Penn Community Bank and its predecessors.
“Long before I started at the bank, its leaders and team members already had established a tradition of service, modeled by a board of directors with an established reputation for the highest ethics, a commitment to doing business locally, and giving back to the community through volunteerism and financial donations,” said Coyle. “The power of this giving is felt throughout the organization, and it has enhanced my own interest to be involved in various organizations that help improve the quality of life throughout Bucks County.”
Bestowed each year upon a member of the United Way of Bucks County’s Board of Directors, the award honors the memory of the late Dr. Stanton Kelton, a board member from 1966 to 1993.
“Dr. Kelton was a compassionate and generous advocate for those in need in Bucks County, and in presenting this award in his name, we seek to honor a leader who has contributed significantly to helping United Way of Bucks County to fulfill its mission to the community,” said Jamie Haddon, president and CEO of United Way of Bucks County. “Jeane Coyle embodies the spirit of that dedication, and we are proud to recognize her service and commitment to United Way and all of Bucks County.”
The award was presented during United Way of Bucks County’s annual Bucksgiving breakfast and awards ceremony on May 6. The event is held each year to thank donors, community partners, advocates and volunteers for all they do to help the organization, which is charged with overseeing donations from area workers to more than 100 nonprofit organizations across Bucks County.
