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. Brice, president and chief executive officer at S&T Bank. “She goes above and beyond the responsibilities of her role to pave the way for women leaders at the bank and within the community. It's great for her efforts to be recognized outside the walls of the bank.”

Yesho, who has been with S&T Bank for nine years, is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the bank's auditing functions. She holds a Certified Public Accountant license and Certification in Risk Management Assurance designation. She also is a member of the Institute of Internal Auditors, Pennsylvania Institute of CPAs and American Institute of CPAs.

Yesho was formerly an audit senior manager at Ernst & Young and a vice president–financial manager for the PNC Financial Services Group.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
