First Farmers Bank & Trust employees invited to the State of the Union address in Washington, DC; Gene Miles and Chelsee Hatfield to attend as guests of Sen. Todd Young of Indiana.
First Farmers Financial Corp(OTCMKTS:FFMR) parent company of First Farmers Bank & Trust, released a public announcement last month regarding a new corporate wage and community support program shortly after federal legislation passed affecting corporate tax rates. The goal was to reinforce commitment to local communities and to employees. The response to the announcement exceeded expectations and the organization received national media coverage. Inquiry from the office of Senator Todd Young led to further discussion on the new programs and their expected impact to First Farmers employees and local communities. As a result of the discussion, bank CEO Gene Miles will represent bank leadership and shareholders and Chelsee Hatfield, Windfall, will represent bank staff impacted by the new wage program at the Presidential State of the Union address in Washington, DC on Jan 30, 2018 as guests of Sen. Young. Both are proud to be representing the organization and stated their goal for the trip is “ to demonstrate the hard work and dedication of our employees and extol the virtues and corporate philosophy of First Farmers Bank & Trust”. First Farmers will be updating the trip on corporate website ( ffbt.com ) and social media (facebook.com/firstfarmers, twitter.com/FirstFarmersBnk, instagram.com/firstfarmers )
