Ohio Valley Bank Recognized for Lifetime Giving to Marshall Foundation

Huntington – Ohio Valley Bank is one of 13 new members welcomed into the Marshall University Foundation Inc.’s President’s Circle Society.

Recognizing individuals and organizations that have lifetime giving ranging from $100,000 to $250,000, the President’s Circle is one of six lifetime giving societies that the foundation recognizes.

Earlier this year, OVB made a $50,000 gift to support the new College of Business facility. In 2013, they established the Ohio Valley Bank Scholarship, which supports sophomore, junior or senior students from Mason County, and Gallia and Meigs counties in Ohio who attend Marshall University’s Mid-Ohio Valley Center in Point Pleasant.

Also, they have supported School of Medicine initiatives and the Marshall University Alumni Association.

“Ohio Valley Bank continually supports Marshall University’s growth,” said Dr. Ron Area, the Foundation’s CEO in a University-issued press release.

”They are dedicated to providing opportunities so that students can obtain a higher education and they continue to support our facilities because they understand the impact they have on our communities. We are grateful for their continued partnership and loyalty to educate our next generation.”

“On behalf of the 300+ community bankers at Ohio Valley Bank, I want to thank Marshall University and President Gilbert for this incredible honor,” said Ohio Valley Bank Chairman of the Board and CEO Tom Wiseman. 

“We work every day to put Community First. We look at every donation as an investment, an investment to improve the communities where we live and work.”

There are 497 individuals and organizations across the six societies. Lifetime giving is calculated at the end of each fiscal year. To view all of the Marshall University’s lifetime giving societies and members, please visit www.marshall.edu/foundation.
