Clark County’s 2013 First Citizen Award Presentation
Tuesday marked a very special day for our Vancouver, Washington branch. As a long-time supporter of the Clark County First Citizen award, we are honored once again to have been a part of this 74-year old tradition of celebrating Clark County’s community leaders by the Community Foundation of Southwest Washington. Recipients are chosen for their accomplishments and contributions to the community in a number of areas.
This year’s recipient is Robert “Bob” Schaefer, a practicing attorney, former state legislator and civic leader.
Mr. Schaefer is an incredible role model for those looking to make a difference in their community. He grew up in Vancouver and has woven his parents’ value of civic involvement into his life for more than 50 years. After receiving his law degree, he worked as a deputy prosecuting attorney for Clark County and then served four terms in the House of Representatives. As both a legislator and lobbyist, Mr. Schaefer has won numerous boons for the southwest Washington region including the attraction and retention of many technology giants. He has been an advocate for growing an educated workforce and co-chaired the committee that developed the plan for the creation of Washington State University Vancouver. Over the years, his reputation for integrity, fair-mindedness, wisdom and collaboration have landed him on numerous boards dealing with such important issues as education, economic development and healthcare enhancement.
Regents Bank’s Executive Vice President and Regional Manager Tami Nesburg was on hand at the ceremony to present Mr. Schaefer with a $1,000 contribution to the charity of his choice. He selected the Clark College Foundation and Open House Ministries.
Regents Bank is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2013 First Citizen award and to take part in honoring Mr. Schaefer.
