Stamford Senior Center to hold mini golf tourney, First County Bank awards scholarships and more

Stamford-based First County Bank Foundation has announced this year’s recipients of the Richard E. Taber Citizenship Award scholarships. The annual award honors three Fairfield County high school students who consistently demonstrate good citizenship at school, at home and in the community.

The award is named after Richard E. Taber who retired as chairman and CEO of First County Bank in March 2011. It is in recognition of Taber’s 40-plus-year career at the bank and innumerable contributions to the community.

Among those chosen to receive a $5,000 scholarship were Karys Webb of Darien who attended Darien High School and will attend the University of Virginia, majoring in Global Public Health, and Sage Fuhrman of New Canaan, who attended New Canaan High School and will attend the University of Texas at Austin, majoring in Human Dimensions of Organizations .
