FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) -
Sandra Olivas, who has been a familiar face on KCTV5 newscasts for almost 15 years, has announced that she will be leaving the station to pursue a career in the financial services industry.
Olivas is proud to be joining the executive staff of Brotherhood Bank & Trust, a full-service community bank with six offices in Wyandotte and Johnson counties. She is the daughter of Mexican immigrants and former co-host of "Que Pasa KC," a television program created for Hispanic audiences and lifestyles.
Olivas said, "I have been honored to report in the city where I grew up and I have truly enjoyed sharing important stories on the news impacting long-time residents and hard-working newcomers. Now, I am excited about continuing this great relationship I have built with the community by helping people create a strong financial foundation for their families. Being able to represent Brotherhood, a longtime, locally-owned community bank, is a wonderful opportunity for me, both personally and professionally," Today, she is anxious to get back to her local roots by helping immigrants, their families and small businesses take advantage of Brotherhood's specialized banking programs and services.
Brotherhood Bank & Trust, a division of Bank of Labor, has been serving working families in Wyandotte and Johnson counties since 1924. It was one of the first such institutions in the area to tailor services to small businesses, and families of underserved populations.
