First Na­tional Bank earns Pa­triot Award

The Advance of Bucks County - - WORD ON THE STREET -

NEW­TOWN – ESGR, a Depart­ment of De­fense agency, has pre­sented The First Na­tional Bank with its Pa­triot Award in recog­ni­tion of the bank’s sup­port of em­ploy­ees in the Na­tional Guard and the Na­tional Re­serves.

The First was nom­i­nated for the Em­ployer Sup­port of the Guard and Re­serve (ESGR) Pa­triot Award by for­mer Penn­syl­va­nia Na­tional Guard Spe­cial­ist, Ni­cole Tshudy, who served as an in­tel­li­gence an­a­lyst with the 556th Mil­i­tary In­tel­li­gence Com­pany. Tshudy per­formed her mil­i­tary du­ties in the Na­tional Guard while she con­tin­ued work­ing as a Cor­po­rate Of­fi­cer, As­sis­tant Op­er­a­tions & Se­cu­rity Di­rec­tor at the First.

“We have al­ways rec­og­nized that the es­sen­tial de­fense work Ni­cole pro­vided for our na­tion re­quired a cer­tain flex­i­bil­ity in her work sched­ule here at the bank,” ex­plained Dan Shaf­fer, Pres­i­dent of The First Na­tional Bank. “It has al­ways been an honor for us to help her honor the com­mit­ment she made to the Na­tional Guard.”

“I nom­i­nated First Na­tional Bank for many rea­sons. They view my ser­vice as an as­set to the team and not an in­con­ve­nience; even when I was on leave for eight months of train­ing,” said Tshudy. “But I’m also in­cred­i­bly proud that The First re­cently un­veiled a spe­cial new Mil­i­tary check­ing ac­count that of­fers all of the in­cen­tives of the bank’s Pre­mium check­ing ac­count, with no min­i­mum bal­ance re­quire­ments or monthly main­te­nance fees for ac­tive duty per­son­nel. The First al­ways puts the community, and those who pro­tect it, first.”

ESGR was es­tab­lished in 1972 to pro­mote co­op­er­a­tion and un­der­stand­ing be­tween Re­serve Com­po­nent Ser­vice mem­bers and their civil­ian em­ploy­ers and to as­sist in the res­o­lu­tion of con­flicts aris­ing from an em­ployee’s mil­i­tary com­mit­ment.
