Dan Westhues got indoctrinated early in life on being involved in his community.

“Both of my parents were very philanthropic,” he said. “Between them they chaired everything in town. Mom did the first YMCA auction and dad chaired the United Way, so I grew up that way.”

“When I started work at Central Bank, it was kind of expected of us to get involved in the community,” Westhues added. “Mr. Cook wanted to grow the bank and better the community, giving us the flexibility to be involved in these activities.”

The United Way is a passion for Westhues. He’ll be chairman next year.
