The Farmers Bank & Trust Board of Directors recently announced the promotion of Jada Bullock to Financial Services Trainer.
A graduate of Arkansas High School in 2015, Jada graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Human Resource Workplace Development in 2020 from the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville.
“While in college, I learned a lot of information regarding how to communicate with employees to determine how to develop and help them grow in the workplace,” said Bullock. “Obtaining my degree helped me realize I wanted to continue to grow at Farmers. The opportunity to transition into the Learning and Development department really sparked my interest.”
Bullock started working at Farmers Bank & Trust while still in school in 2018 as a teller at the Arkansas Boulevard location in Texarkana. She helped train new employees when the Bank opened its new location in Prosper, Texas in 2019.
“I am so happy to see Jada grow with us at Farmers Bank & Trust,” said James Bramlett, Texarkana Market President. “From her going to college, working to take care of our customers every day, and then completing her degree, this promotion is great for her and the Bank. She is an essential part of Farmers Bank & Trust and the Texarkana team.”
Jada is the middle child of three and is involved in the community by regularly attending ribbon cuttings and groundbreakings for new businesses. She also enjoys Texarkana Chamber of Commerce events and participates in Business After Hours.
“I am thrilled that Jada has joined the Learning & Development department,” said Alissa Flanagan, Supervisor of Learning & Development. “Jada brings a unique and exciting perspective to the L&D team due to her experience as a retail banker and teller mentor. With her experience, education, and eagerness to learn, I know that Jada will do great things and I am so excited to watch her grow!”
