Ken Hart with People's Bank and Trust originally came to Taylorville in 1973 to take a position with First Trust and Savings Bank. In the last 43 years, Hart has played a huge role in many area activities, movements, and developments across Christian County. At the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet on Friday, he was honored for his years of service to the community with a “Lifetime Achievement Award.”
In thanking the crowd, Hart told a story of his first day working at the bank. That day didn't go as expected.
Hart thanked numerous people for the help and support they provided him over the years. One person Hart thanked was Karen Yehman, who wasn't afraid to get after him.
The awards ceremony was broadcast live on Easy Hits 96.5 and the TaylorvilleDailyNews.com Facebook page.
