KENOSHA — December 2021: First American Bank is proud to receive the 2021 Business Partner of the Year award given by Kenosha’s YMCA, which recognizes organizations that have enabled the YMCA to fulfill its mission of empowering young people to find and share their voice. First American Bank has worked closely with the YMCA for many years and remains committed to helping the organization advance its core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
