Wanda Parker and Bob Glenn Honored at Texas Bankers Foundation 50-Year Banker Award Luncheon in San Antonio
On May 3, the Texas Bankers Foundation honored Wanda Parker from Lubbock and Bob Glenn from Weatherford for their 50 years of service to the banking industry. Both Wanda and Bob were honored at the 50-Year Banker Award Luncheon during Texas Bankers Association’s 129th Annual Convention and Exposition in San Antonio. This annual award recognizes Texas bankers who have devoted 50 or more years of service to the banking industry.
Wanda began her banking career in 1957 working for American State Bank before joining Plains National Bank in 1962 (which would later become PlainsCapital Bank). She spent time as a teller and secretary and worked in various departments including collections, exchanges,new accounts and notes before becoming a loan officer. In 1983, she was given the opportunity to start a club at PlainsCapital for customers over 55 years old. Today, Parker is vice president and business development officer at PlainsCapital’s main bank branch.
Bob began his banking career in 1963 at First National Bank in Weatherford and in 1964 he was hired as a teller at Citizens National Bank. He was eventually trained to become a loan officer and found his passion for helping people achieve their goals in life. Bob began working for Merchants and Farmers Bank (which would later become Texas Bank) in 1980 and was named branch president in 2000. In 2006, PlainsCapital Bank opened in Weatherford with Bob Glenn as executive vice president.
Wanda and Bob were among 14 other Texas bankers honored at the award ceremony. More than 15 PlainsCapital employees attended the luncheon to show their support for Wanda and Bob including Alan B. White, chairman and chief executive officer of PlainsCapital Corporation and Brian Heflin, chief operations officer of PlainsCapital Bank. Les Eubank, president of PlainsCapital Bank in Lubbock, John Owens, Lubbock region chairman, Pat Hamilton, president of PlainsCapital Bank in Weatherford and Steve Hambrick, region chairman of PlainsCapital Bank in Fort Worth, also attended the ceremony.
“The 50-Year Banker Award is a true testament to Wanda’s and Bob’s exceptional leadership, work ethic and character,” said Alan B. White. “The relationships they have built and the services they provide in their respective communities go above and beyond to contribute to the success of PlainsCapital Bank. They have been a blessing to the company and I wish them many more years of success.”
