George A. Frampton/Cornhusker Bank Scholarship for LHS
The George A. Frampton/Cornhusker Bank Scholarship for Lincoln High School was created by Cornhusker Bank in 1999 to honor the life of George A. Frampton. Mr. Frampton devoted his life to banking, starting his career in Lincoln in 1914. He worked for several banks over the years and in 1948 purchased the Farmer’s State Bank of Davey. He moved the bank to Lincoln, renamed it Cornhusker Bank and served as its president until 1975. Mr. Frampton passed away in 1981, but members of his family are still actively involved with Cornhusker Bank.
