Dana Dumezich, a member of the board of directors for American Community Bank and long-time member of the Lake County Board of Elections and Voter Registration, was presented a Sagamore of the Wabash Award.
The award is the highest civilian honor presented to an Indiana resident recognizing their distinguished service to the state. Dumezich received her award from Michael Mellon, president and CEO of American Community Bank.
Gov. Eric Holcomb recognized Dumezich for her years of service on the Lake County Board of Elections and Voter Registration, which oversees and administers all aspects of the election and voter registration process in Lake County.
“I am so honored to have received this award and recognition,” Dumezich said. “It is a privilege to have served the state and my community in this manner and it is gratifying to know that it is appreciated.”
Mellon appreciates Dumezich’s contributions to the bank board and the work she does for the community.
“Dana does great work for our bank as a board member, but her meaningful contribution to the local community in the management of the democratic process is significant and very deserving of this recognition,” he said.
American Community Bank of Indiana operates five full-service bank branches in Schererville, Crown Point, Dyer, Hammond and Munster.
