STAMFORD, CT - First County Bank recently announced this year’s recipients of the Richard E. Taber Citizenship Award scholarships. This annual award honors Fairfield County high school students who consistently demonstrate good citizenship at school, at home and in the community.

The program awards scholarships to three deserving students and is designed to recognize and encourage young people who are honest, hard-working and helpful. Each year, the foundation accepts student applications from the beginning of the year until the end of April; the recipients are notified in May. The award is named after Richard E. Taber who retired as chairman and CEO of First County Bank in March 2011. It is in recognition of Taber’s 40-plus-year career at the Bank and innumerable contributions to the community.

Each of the following students were chosen to receive a $5,000 Richard E. Taber Citizenship Award scholarship: Sheyleen Perez Vera of Stamford attended the Academy of Information Technology & Engineering (AITE) and will attend Fordham University majoring in business administration and marketing; Anyergui (Angie) Jimenez of Darien graduated from Darien High School and will attend Union College, majoring in political science; Reva Kale of Westport, attended Staples High School and will attend University of California – Berkeley majoring in social sciences.

“These students exemplify good citizenship and service to our local communities,” said Rey Giallongo, chairman and CEO of First County Bank, and president of the Foundation. “We were amazed at the caliber of high school seniors applying for the Richard E. Taber Citizenship Award. We are excited to present scholarships to these amazing students, knowing that we are supporting future leaders with a passion for community service.”

Richard Taber, a member of the board of directors at First County Bank, said, “I am very proud to have my name associated with three such community-minded and talented young adults. With the level of success they have already achieved, I’m certain they will have a successful future.”
