First National Bank of Pennsylvania, the largest subsidiary of F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB), has announced that Andy Russell, former member of the famed Steel Curtain defense, will autograph copies of his most recent book as part of the Grand Opening activities for First National Bank’s Harrisburg Regional Office. All proceeds from the book signing will benefit EconomicsPennsylvania, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping students become productive members of society, knowledgeable consumers and competent financial decision makers.

Andy Russell began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a linebacker in 1963. After a two-year Army deployment to Germany, he rejoined the Steelers from 1966 to 1976 as part of the famed Steel Curtain. Andy, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, earned rings for Super Bowls IX and X and was the Steelers MVP during the 1971 NFL season, as well as team captain for 10 years.

As part of the celebration of First National Bank’s new Harrisburg regional office, Andy will be on hand to autograph copies of his most recent book, Beyond the Goalpost, the story of his personal outlook and reflection on life. Autographed books will be available for purchase for $20; other memorabilia will be autographed for $10. All proceeds will benefit EconomicsPennsylvania, an organization also supported by First National Bank of Pennsylvania.

First National Bank’s new Harrisburg regional hub houses more than 40 financial professionals. In addition to a state of the art, full-service branch located on the first floor of the building, experts in wealth management, private banking, treasury management and commercial lending office on the first and second floors. Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, a law firm that includes the largest state government relations practice in Pennsylvania, occupies the top three floors of the newly-constructed five-story office building located at the intersection of Second and State Streets.

The book signing with Andy Russell is just one of many events planned as part of First National Bank’s week-long Grand Opening celebration. The week kicks off with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, October 15 at 11:00 AM, with State Treasurer Rob McCord as featured speaker. The public is invited to participate in Grand Opening activities, view First National Bank’s state-of-the-art facility and learn about FNB’s comprehensive financial products and services.
