RCB’s Todd Ward receives Owasso Chamber of Commerce Service Award

OWASSO —

Todd Ward, RCB Bank VP Commercial Loans, was recognized by the Owasso Chamber of Commerce for his service to the community as a Chamber Ambassador.  
He was presented with the Chamber 2013 Service Award at the Annual Chamber Luncheon. 
“What a surprise. I am truly honored. There are so many hardworking people in Owasso who volunteer their time to the Chamber and the community never asking for the spotlight.” Ward said of the presentation.
“They do what they do for the betterment of the community. It’s the actions of those individuals that have allowed Owasso to grow into the incredible community it is and why so many families and businesses call Owasso home. I am honored to be recognized”
Ward has been involved with the Owasso Chamber and serving as a Chamber Ambassador since 2006. 
He recently finished a two-year term as Chairman for the Chamber Ambassadors. Ambassadors represent the Chamber and the Owasso community at ribbon cuttings and community events. 
They also meet and welcome new Chamber members. 
A commercial lender for RCB Bank, Ward is honored to represent a company who has supported him in his career and community endeavors, mentioning that often he is wearing his RCB Bank name tag on one lapel and his Chamber Ambassador name tag on the other.
“The plaque recognizes ‘Todd Ward, RCB Bank’ not ‘Todd Ward’,” he said. “I am very proud of RCB Bank and the fact that they allow me time to be involved in this community. This is a huge commitment by RCB Bank to give back to the community through their employees. I am grateful.”
