WAYNE – A member of the Wayne community recently received graduation recognition from the Pacific Coast Banking School.
According to a release from State Nebraska Bank & Trust, Kirby Hall was among the 200 graduates from institutions across the country who participated in the graduation ceremony earlier this month in Seattle from the University of Washington.
Hall is the current State Nebraska Bank & Trust CFO and Vice President. The ceremony was held on September 2.
Founded in 1938, Pacific Coast Banking School (PCBS) offers a graduate-level executive leadership and financial management education over a three-year period in partnership with the Foster School of Business at the University of Washington. Hall began the program in 2019, with a delay in 2020 and only online courses in 2021. This year, she was able to return to the University of Washington’s campus for in-person classes. She is the third employee of State Nebraska Bank & Trust to graduate from PCBS, along with Vice President Jason Claussen and CEO Matt Ley.
Hall joined SNB as a Controller in 2014 and worked as a teller during her college years. She graduated from Wayne State College with a BS in Public Accounting and Finance and an MBA. In the community, Hall is busy teaching Sunday School, volunteering for Boomerfest and Kiwanis, serving on the Wayne Basketball Development Association board, participating on the WAED Organizing committee and volunteering with Wayne Elementary Boosters. She is also a graduate of the Leadership Wayne IX class.
Outside of work, Hall lives in Wayne where she and her husband Brandon raise their three children. When they are not attending activities for their children, they try to catch Husker football whenever they can, play cards and board games and spend time outdoors with the kids.
