Robert E. Evans Scholarship

Robert E. Evans began his career with Peoples Bank in 1970 as a trust officer. In 1980 he became the first president and CEO of Peoples Bancorp, Inc., and in 1987, became the sixth president of Peoples Bank. Throughout his 35 years with the company, he inspired those around him to conduct themselves with professionalism and integrity.

Robert Evans was passionate about being a good corporate citizen and a strong believer in the value of higher education. Throughout his long career, he was dedicated to maintaining a culture of continuous learning and giving back to the communities Peoples Bank serves.

We created the Robert E. Evans Education Fund to honor his memory in grateful appreciation of his dedication to persistence, determination and belief in the power of learning.
