Great Turnout for SNBuilding Ribbon Cutting
August 23, 2021 – SNB hosted a successful grand opening and ribbon cutting of the SNBuilding last Friday in Wayne.
Located at 1010 Main Street in Wayne, guests of the open house were treated to food, giveaways, and tours of the building to meet all the tenants and see the facility. Over 100 people took a shot at the free throw contest. Winners Diane Long, Eileen Lutt and Stephen LeGrand each received a bank coffee tumbler with gift certificate to The Table, and Jairzihmo Alberto and Brent Johnson were the two grand prize winners who received $100 each in Chamber Bucks.
The SNBuilding is a 14,000-square-foot facility located across from Wayne State College. This state-of-the art building is home to the bank’s second location in Wayne, the Campus Branch, featuring a walk-in lobby, 24-hour ATM, and drive-thru lanes. The building has a basketball/pickleball court for community use. Since opening late last year, over 200 people have used the community gym for nearly 500 hours of play time.
The SNBuilding is also home to the bank’s partner, State National Insurance Company; BeckAg, a leader in consulting services for the agricultural industry; and Title Services of the Plains. The building is now 80% full, with only three individual office suites remaining for lease on the second floor. “We wanted to give back to our community and make another long-term investment in Wayne by opening this facility,” said Matthew Ley, CEO of State Nebraska Bank & Trust. “We look forward to welcoming Wayne State College students to Wayne this fall, and seeing more community members use our gym.” Those interested in leasing individual office suites should contact Mr. Ley.
Ashley Rewinkel is Branch Manager and Personal Banker at the Campus Branch. Ms. Rewinkel is responsible for opening and administering loans, managing the day-to-day workflow of the Campus Branch, and overseeing use of the SNBuilding’s community gym. “We’ve had such great usage of our gym, from families playing pickleball and basketball to companies hosting conferences.” Community members can sign up to use the gym at the Campus Branch. The space is also available to rent for parties and conferences. The Campus Branch is open Monday through Saturday, 9am to 6pm, with Saturdays open only via the drive thru.
The SNBuilding was designed by Roy Ley with Hoke Ley, an architecture and interior design firm in Lawrence, Kansas. Roy is the brother of Matthew Ley and designer of the Main Branch at 2nd and Main Streets in Wayne. The bank used Otte Construction from Wayne as the general contractor, and made it a priority to hire local contractors as much as possible throughout construction to help support the local economy.
Founded in 1892, State Nebraska Bank & Trust is the only bank locally owned in Wayne, run by the same family for five generations. For more information, visit www.statenebank.com or call (402) 375-1130.
