At State Nebraska Bank & Trust, we believe community investment is a priority.  That’s what makes us unique in our approach to hometown banking.

Watch Our Employees Share Why They Give Back and Invest

Without the business from our customers in Wayne and the surrounding area, we realize we could not be the successful bank we are today for more than one hundred years.  We give back to show our appreciation, but also because we believe it is the right thing to do to.  Local investment creates a healthy, strong place to work, live, raise a family and more.

We support all of our employees with their volunteer efforts in the community, whether during banking hours or after.  Our employees have volunteered with community organizations such as Teammates, Rotary, United Way, WAED/Chamber of Commerce, Wayne Elementary Boosters, Kiwanis, and more.

Teaching Excellence

We also recognize outstanding teaching at Wayne State College through the SNB Teaching Excellence Award.  David Ley, the bank’s chairman of the board, established the award in 1998 as a way of recognizing and strengthening outstanding teaching at Wayne State.

This prestigious honor is awarded on the basis of rigorous standards that require a superior level of effective teaching.  Recipients are recognized during spring commencement at WSC and receive a gift of $1,200 from SNB.
