South Georgia Banking Company’s Food Drive a Great Success

South Georgia Banking Company, along with area banks, supported the United Way of South Central Georgia and local food pantries by participating in the Banking Together to Drive Out Hunger campaign, a food drive held during October and November.

 

The food drive was a great success, and overall, employees and customers from all of our SGBC branches collected more than 2,820 items for the United Way.  The food was donated to the community in which it was collected for all the counties we serve: Tift County, Colquitt County, Turner County, Crisp County and Dooly County.

 

Long Time SGBC Employee Retires

 

 On March 12th, South Georgia Banking Company honored Ivonne Alexander, a customer service representative and teller for 35 years, with a   retirement reception.

 Originally from Oklahoma, marriage brought her to Tifton.  Ivonne began in the banking industry as a bookkeeper and says her love of banking stems from being able to solve customer problems.

 During her 35 years with the bank, she’s witnessed many changes with regard to the technology used to do her job; however, she recalls SGBC’s growth as the most significant change.

 "For the last 35 years, I’ve seen South Georgia Banking Company grow under the leadership of Pait Willis from one office with eight employees to eight offices in five cities,” said Ivonne. “Many changes have taken place in the banking industry, but one thing has remained constant—the family feeling among the officers and employees. I know the bank will continue to grow for years to come under the able leadership of Glenn Willis, Jr. and the officers and staff.”

 As for retirement plans, Ivonne looks forward to spending more time with her family, which includes10 grandchildren and one great-grandson. She would also like to hone her sewing skills and take a few relaxing vacations.

 “It was a joy to have Ivonne as part of the South Georgia Bank team for so many years,” said Glenn Willis, president of SGBC. “We know she will enjoy her retirement, but she will be missed by employees and customers alike.”
