Sanders to retire from Farmers National Bank

Beverly Sanders, a native of Mercer County, recently announced her retirement from Farmers National Bank.

Sanders' banking career started in the early 1980s at Citizens Bank of Burgin. She continued her employment after that bank was purchased by Farmers National Bank in 1990, and she was promoted to assistant vice president and manager of the Burgin Express Branch in January 2004. She plans to continue residing in Burgin with her husband, Roy Lee Sanders.

"Beverly has been a true delight to work with," said Greg Caudill, president and CEO of the bank. "She was the personal banker to many folks in the Burgin area for 20 years. Her positive, sunny disposition set a standard that the rest of our staff strives to follow. We all certainly wish her nothing but the best in her retirement. She will be sorely missed."
