One of the great things about being a community bank is that our employees pitch in where they are needed and get to contribute their own skills and talents in a way that benefits the community.
When Kayla Crowder joined CedarStone Bank as a teller at the Mt. Juliet Office, she didn't know that she would soon be coordinating the bank's social media activities.
"What excites me is the opportunity to share the fun we have with our customers and friends while being active in the community," said Kayla about her new role. "I enjoy being able to use my knowledge in social media to connect our customers to community events and to encourage involvement. My passion is that everyone who sees what CedarStone Bank proudly participates in will come to love our bank like I love them, like family."
Said CedarStone Bank president Bob McDonald, "We live in one of the best places in the country and are proud to be a part of so many things in the community. Kayla will help us to stay in closer touch with our customers and share with them in the things that are important to them. She'll do a great job."
Kayla graduated summa cum laude from Nashville State Community College with an associate degree in business administration. She attended Lebanon High School where she played basketball for four years. Recently engaged to her fiancé, Bryan, she is an active member of the Hillcrest Baptist Church, where she sings in the choir.
"I hope everyone who uses social media will connect with CedarStone on Google+ and Facebook, because it's a great way to connect with friends and neighbors, get to know your bankers, and even do some business networking," Kayla continued. "People can subscribe to the blog on our website, too, and there are issues of our newsletter on the site, and a place to sign up for e-news." For business, CedarStone Bank is also on LinkedIn.
