First Southern Promotes Heart Health in Memory of Hughes

Feb 1, 2012

Steve Hughes

(KEVIL, Ky.) – First Southern National Bank Team Members in Ballard County are joining the fight against heart disease throughout the month of February in memory of long-time coworker, Steve Hughes. Hughes worked for First Southern for 14 years. He died suddenly last February as the result of a heart attack.

“We all still miss Steve dearly,” said Cathy Sullivan, Teller for First Southern National Bank. “Inviting everyone to honor and remember him in this way seems so fitting. He’d love it.” Cathy is coordinating the bank’s heart-health awareness events during February.

Employees will kick off the month-long initiative by wearing red on Friday, February 3 – something all 200-plus First Southern Team Members across the state have been invited to do as well. On display in the Kevil and Wickliffe branch bank lobbies will be trees decorated with hearts, which may be personalized in exchange for a one dollar donation to the American Heart Association. Stop by either Ballard County location to make your donation – in Wickliffe at 359 Court Street, or in Kevil at 141 Kentucky Avenue.
