Rondout Savings Bank’s Dare to Soar Winner

September 6, 2020

Every day we are lucky to be surrounded by individuals who exhibit strong work ethics and cultivate a culture of excellence at Rondout Savings Bank; they’re the people who just make jobs easier.

Two times a year we seek out nominations to recognize those very special people and award them with the prestigious “Dare to Soar” Award.  This award is exceptionally distinctive because all nominations come from their co-workers.  There’s something wonderful in giving and receiving public peer recognition for the personal attributes and qualities that make these individuals invaluable members of our organization.

Congratulations on winning our 2020 Dare to Soar award Jodi Urban!
