Sterling wins outstanding Washington state civic business award

Two companies from Spokane and Tacoma have received Secretary of State Sam Reed's  most prestigious civics award for businesses in Washington state.

Reed will present the 2011 Corporations for Communities awards to Spokane-based Sterling Savings Bank and Korsmo Consruction at a ceremony on Nov. 2.
 
The awards are part of an annual recognition hosted by Washington's Secretary of State for companies making outstanding commitments to their communities.
 
Sterling was the winner of the large-company category while Korsmo was honored in the small-company sector.
 
Sterling and Korsmo Construction “stood out thanks to their impressive records of community involvement,” Reed said in announcing the awards. “Both are very deserving of this honor as a result of their dedication to volunteerism and their communities.”
 
Sterling was recognized as the prime sponsor of the Spokane Symphony Labor Day Comstock concert, and for its employees donating more than 27,000 hours to Habitat for Humanity, Junior Achievement, United Way, regional food banks and other community activities.
