SDSU Honors the Fishback Family
Wednesday, May 7th
The South Dakota State University Foundation recently honored the Fishback Family as the 2014 Philanthropic Family of the Year.
The Fishback family founded Fishback Financial Corporation – one of South Dakota’s largest privately held bank holding companies with 16 First Bank & Trust locations. Bob Fishback is Chairman of the Board and Van Fishback serves as Vice Chairman of the Board for the corporation.
The Philanthropic Family of the Year award, created in 2012, “acknowledges exceptional generosity to diverse causes by a family that serves as an inspiration to others to support South Dakota State University.”
The families of Bob & Pat Fishback and Van & Barb Fishback have a long history of support for SDSU. “Because of their collective generosity, we have the Fishback Center for Early Childhood Development. The Fishback Outdoor Learning Laboratory. The Fishback Theater in the Performing Arts Center,” said Steve Stahly, chair of the Foundation’s Council of Trustees. “Last year, we dedicated the Van D. and Barbara B. Fishback Honors College."
