Robinson-Shuba Commemorative Statue Committee | Powered by (kind) People. Fueled by You.

Premier Bank recognizes the Robinson-Shuba Commemorative Statue Committee for their contributions to our community.

The larger-than-life bronze statue will portray the 1946 handshake at home plate between Jackie Robinson, the first Black baseball player to break Major League Baseball’s racial barrier, and his white teammate, Youngstown native George Shuba. Downtown Youngstown development advocate Economic Action Group is the fiscal agent for the statue project.

The Powered by (kind) People. Fueled by You. video series features the Premier Bank team and their valued community partners throughout the Bank’s markets as they work together to spread kindness and collectively support important programs to benefit families in the communities served.
