Pence Honors LCB For Contributions To Economy

On Monday, Gov. Mike Pence honored 25 Indiana companies with the Governor’s Century or Half Century Business Award, recognizing each company for its longevity and service to its employees, community and the state.
Among those businesses recognized was Lake City Bank.
“As Indiana celebrates its bicentennial, we honor the companies that have helped build a state with a record employment and continued economic growth,” said Pence in a provided press release. “These companies, which have been growing and adding jobs here for at least 50 or 100 years, are an engine of our state’s economy. Their longevity sets a standard for excellence and has laid a foundation for each and every company choosing to start or grow here in Indiana today. Each one of these companies is an important part of our history and I’m confident they will play a key role in our state’s future.”
The Governor’s Century and Half Century Business Awards honor Hoosier businesses that have remained in operation for a minimum of 100 or 50 consecutive years and have also demonstrated a commitment to community service. More than 1,400 companies from across the state have been recognized during the 25-year history of the award.
The Century Award honorees for 2015 included Lake City Bank for 144 years, Kosciusko County.
