Pioneer Bank has honored four employees, including two from Roswell, for their community volunteerism.

Juliana Halvorson, vice president of marketing, earned a Gold Award for volunteering more than 500 hours, while Assistant Vice President and Retirement Specialist Nancy Montgomery earned a Bronze Award for giving more than 100 hours of her time to local organizations.

The other two employees recognized were from Las Cruces.

The 2017 Points of Light President’s Volunteer Service Awards are a result of a Team Pioneer program implemented in that year enabling nonprofits to contact the bank for financial contributions or volunteers.

Volunteer hours are measured over a 12-month period, and gold, silver and bronze awards are designated based on cumulative hours. The highest honor, the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award, goes to those who contribute more than 4,000 hours of service in a lifetime.

Montgomery was recognized for her volunteer efforts with local retirement homes.

Halvorson received recognition for her service as a board member with MainStreet Roswell and the Walker Aviation Museum Foundation, her participation on the Roswell Tourism Council and her involvement with many other Roswell organizations.

The Las Cruces employees recognized were Kiel Hoffman, market president of Las Cruces, who volunteered over 337 hours to numerous Las Cruces and southern New Mexico organizations to earn the Silver Award; and Karissa Doan, a retail banking supervisor in Las Cruces, who contributed more than 200 hours helping the Las Cruces business community grow. She was given a Bronze Award.

“As a community-focused bank, we are committed to make a positive difference by engaging in meaningful and effective programs that work to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods,” said Christopher G. Palmer, Pioneer Bank president. “We are very proud of our Team Pioneer program and the positive impact it makes in our communities.”

Along with the recognition, recipients received a personalized certificate, an official pin, a medallion and a congratulatory letter from the President of the United States.
