“Mint to Be”


Women in the Workforce Luncheon Set to Inspire

Join First National Bank as it presents the 2019 Women in the Workforce luncheon, “Mint to Be,” April 25th! Enjoy a catered lunch, receive door prizes and hear from a designated panel of influential business women in our community. “These women, while from different industries and professions, will openly discuss the challenges and blessings of being a woman in the workforce,” says Lorenda Smith, Vice President of Marketing & Retail, First National Bank. “For years, this day was traditionally known as Secretary’s Day. We are now so far now removed from that stereotype.
However, we are still mothers, wives, daughters and, many times, caregivers,” continued Smith. “Our goal is that participants will leave inspired, motivated and hopefully encouraged as these women share their own struggle of conquering the workplace while maintaining a positive balance at home,” says Smith.
