Nickolay receives Legacy of Community Banking award
Lucille Nickolay, Vice President with the State Bank of New Prague, recently was presented with the Legacy of Community Banking Award from the Independent Community Bankers of Minnesota (ICBM). The award recognizes 50 or more years of service to the banking industry.
Nickolay has spent 70 years in banking-all of them at the State Bank of New Prague. After her high school graduation, she was offered a scholarship to a secretarial school, but couldn't afford the cost of room and board. A few months later the bank needed a bookkeeper and contacted the high school for possible candidates.
