Mars Bank announced it is expanding its team serving Mercer County, Pa. Mitch McFeely, is moving to a full-time commercial banking role focusing on developing business relationships in Mercer and northwestern Pennsylvania counties.

A lifelong Mercer County resident, Armstrong was raised in Grove City and Lakeview school districts. She attended Robert Morris University where she developed an advocacy for the Alzheimer’s Association. She supports various veteran groups in honor of her family’s military background. Armstrong is also involved in many youth sports events in the area with her children.
