Ledyard National Bank, is pleased to announce that President and CEO, Kathryn G. Underwood, has been awarded the New Hampshire Bankers Association's Community Banker of the Year Award for 2015.
The New Hampshire Bankers Association (NHBA) annually honors one New Hampshire bank employee who has truly gone above and beyond to improve the State of New Hampshire through their civic and community engagement. Ms. Underwood was selected for this prestigious honor by a panel of leading public officials from the State of New Hampshire.

The panel of judges noted Ms. Underwood's clear commitment to bringing positive change to her community with the creation of the first ever Go Red for Women event in the Upper Valley to increase awareness that heart disease is the #1 health risk for women, and also bringing a "Fit Friendly" initiative to encourage local businesses to help their employees' live healthier lives.
Upon winning the award, Ms. Underwood said, "Being recognized for leadership in the community is the highest honor and to do so by educating and inspiring others through a cause that I am so passionate about makes it extremely significant to me."
