Vice President of Marketing, Kim Hodges, is not only an integral member of the First State Bank team; she is also an integral member of the greater Athens community.
Born and raised in Henderson County, Kim joined First State Bank in 2000 and served five years as a loan secretary before being promoted to loan operations officer and, in 2007, to the Marketing Department.
Marketing is a perfect fit for Kim, who spends almost as many hours volunteering as she does in the office. A three-time Athens Chamber of Commerce Ambassador of the Year, Kim continues to serve as a chamber ambassador, in addition to serving on the Henderson County Child Welfare Board.
She is a graduate of the American Bankers Association Bank Marketing School, Athens Leadership Institute and a previous board member for the Henderson County United Way, Athens Chamber of Commerce, East Texas Crisis Center, Salvation Army, Keep Athens Beautiful, the Rainbow Room, Athens Public Education Foundation, and the American Cancer Society.
Kim enjoys collecting antiques, do-it-yourself projects and traveling. She and her husband, Lonnie, are proud to call Athens home. They have two grown children and five grandchildren.
