The Maryland Banking School recently announced that Jennifer S. Kreighbaum, Compliance Officer and CRA Officer for First United Bank & Trust, was awarded the Lilian T. Moffat Award for the 2021 session.

The Moffat award was created in honor of Lilian Moffat, a longtime MBA staff member who served the banking industry and Association for 27 years.  She was the devoted registrar and administrator for the Banking School from its inception in 1975 until her retirement in 1986.  It is proudly awarded to the student with the highest overall GPA while serving as an outstanding leader and role model for their fellow students.
