First Bank is about to bid farewell to Anne Porter after 40 years of employment. Anne was hired in June 1978. Anne has worn many hats at the bank. Her first position was in the bookkeeping department. She was later asked to work as a teller part-time, followed by new accounts, and even being one who decorates the Christmas tree. Anne will leave the bank as a loan officer. Through her employment she has worked with four different bank managers and said, “I have made lasting friendships.
She worked for her family’s business for 14 years before coming to bank. Anne says, “Banking is ever-changing, not unlike the world. My years a part of the First National Bank of Morgan opened many doors for me professionally as well as a time to grow.”
Anne has watched the banking industry shift with technology, development and more changes. Through the years with the bank, Anne has been able to volunteer in the community in places like the county fair. Anne described her love for the bank’s involvement in the community, and community development. The bank works hard to help the people of Morgan, and Anne has been an integral part of the volunteering and development.
She said, “I do appreciate the opportunity to work, and everyone I’ve had the opportunity to work with.” When asked what she looked forward to the most with retirement, Anne said. “We have two granddaughters, and they are our life. We plan to follow them with High School Rodeo and Utah Cutting Horse Association. It will be fun to spend time in my yard and learn a new lifestyle.”
Thank you, Anne, for your years of dedicated service to the people of Morgan County through First Bank. There will be an open house on June 14 from 2-4 at the bank so those who would like to wish her well can stop by.
