CHESTERTOWN — Arraminta Ware, a principal with the public accounting firm of Anthony, Judge and Ware LLC in Chestertown, has been elected to the Chesapeake Bank and Trust board of directors.

A lifelong resident of the Eastern Shore, Ware grew up on a farm in the Sudlersville area.

She lives near Chestertown in Queen Anne’s County with her husband Eric Schrader, a self-employed farmer.

After graduating from Lynchburg College with an accounting degree, Ware began working for Anthony and Associates in Chestertown. Since 2000, she has been a member of Anthony, Judge and Ware LLC, according to a news release.

Ernest Strong, chairman of the Chesapeake Bank and Trust board, said Ware’s accounting background and knowledge of local issues will complement its decision-making process.

“We are grateful Arraminta has chosen to become a director of what truly is a community bank,” Strong said in the news release.

Chesapeake Bank and Trust, a locally owned and managed bank headquartered in Chestertown, provides credit, deposit and investment services for businesses and individuals in Kent and Queen Anne’s counties. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Chesapeake Bancorp, which also is headquartered in Chestertown.

In a prepared statement, Ware said: “I believe in and understand the importance of a local banking institution to our community and look forward to contributing to the future success of both. I feel fortunate to live and work on the Eastern Shore.”

Chesapeake Bank and Trust’s main branch is located at 245 High St., Chestertown.
