Area Banker Receives Exemplary Service Award

Quakertown, PA (December 8, 2017) – Rick Slimmer, Vice President/Commercial Loan Officer of QNB Bank, has received the Sigma Phi Epsilon (SigEp) 2018 Exemplary Service Award for his significant and lasting impact on SigEp’s chapters and campus communities. The award recognizes devoted and productive service to the Fraternity at the local or national level for a minimum of 20 years. Among the dedicated group of SigEp volunteers who mentor undergraduates, manage chapter assets, and assist in chapter operations, a select few stand out as truly exemplary. Each year since 2015, only 5 volunteers out of the Fraternity’s 2,400+ have been honored with this prestigious award. Rick will be formally recognized for his achievement in February at the annual Carlson Leadership Academy by SigEp’s National Board of Directors.

Rick has been the heart and soul of Pennsylvania Iota since becoming an alumnus. He’s often credited with continuing the Sig Ep tradition at Muhlenberg, his alma mater and a college of just over 2,000 students. His dedication is apparent in everything he does, from stopping by to check on the chapter house during the summer and holidays to his more than 40 years as Treasurer of the Alumni and Volunteer Corporation of SigEp. Chapter volunteers consider him a mentor and say one of the reasons they serve is for the opportunity to work with and learn from him. Rick is a Distinguished Alumnus recipient, and a chapter scholarship was named after him at the chapter’s 75th anniversary celebration in 2013.
