Lenora Whitehead worked as a part-time teller at the Washington branch from 2002 until she retired in 2014. Unfortunately, soon after retirement, Mrs. Whitehead passed away. Those who knew and worked with her are well aware of the extraordinary member service she provided on a daily basis. Mrs. Whitehead always displayed a great attitude. She could be described as selfless and dependable and was a woman of character and integrity. The Lenora Whitehead Service Award will be awarded each year to an employee who demonstrates all of these same qualities.
In honor of this first award, Crane presented a $1,000 donation to Bethel Mall, a ministry of Bethel United Methodist Church. Mrs. Whitehead volunteered with Bethel Mall for many years.
