At the 2023 Annual Meeting, Mike Kerschner was named the 2023 recipient of the "Lifetime Achievement Award." Mike spent nearly a quarter of a century with the Old Fort Banking Company, making it one of the premier local banks in Seneca County under his leadership. Then, when Mike could have retired, he instead chose to run for office, to which he was successfully elected to the board of the Seneca County Commissioners in 2014. Mike was at the forefront of the effort to build the Seneca County Justice Center, the first such in the State of Ohio. In addition, he pushed for fiscal responsibility and local government transparency while in office.
