In 2017, Roswell-based Pioneer Bank launched its Team Pioneer program, making the company and its employees available to nonprofits in need of financial and/or volunteer help. Since then, many Team Pioneer members have gotten involved in assisting local community organizations.
The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes volunteers like Team Pioneer who lead the charge and inspire others. In June, Pioneer Bank announced that four of its employees have earned a Presidential Volunteer Service Award.
Kiel Hoffman, market president in Las Cruces, volunteered more than 337 hours at various organizations; Karissa Doan, retail banking supervisor in Las Cruces, volunteered more than 200 hours helping the local business community grow; Nancy Montgomery, retirement specialist in Roswell, volunteered more than 100 hours to help retirees with their banking needs; and Juliana Halvorson, vice president of marketing, earned the award for volunteering more than 500 hours.
Recipients received an official pin, a certificate, medallion and congratulatory letter from President Trump.
