A Greensburg area woman, LaDawn Yesho, won the inaugural Champion for Women Award recently at the Pennsylvania Bankers Association's fifth annual Women in Banking Conference.
The award honored Yesho, executive vice president and chief audit executive at S&T Bank, for her efforts to promote and inspire women in the workplace to reach their full potential.
The Champion for Women Award celebrates a seasoned professional who through personal commitment, application, and dedication is invested in others, celebrates success in others, and fosters growth to the fullest potential.
“LaDawn sets the bar high for female executives in the banking industry,” said Todd D.

She holds a Certified Public Accountant license and Certification in Risk Management Assurance designation.
