Bobbie Spurlin

Administrative Assistant
Montgomery Bank, Sikeston

Bobbie began her career at what was then The First National Bank of Sikeston on March 3, 1969. During her 50 years with the bank, Bobbie has worked as a teller, in the loan department, in bookkeeping, data control, deposit operations and her current position in the administrative support area. Bobbie has seen many employees come and go through the years and has formed many great friendships. Bobbie has witnessed many changes at the bank throughout her career.

Bobbie’s co-workers describe her as “a brilliant example of something that cannot be outrun, that will never become obsolete, that will never be phased out for something newer and brighter, that is a loyal and dedicated employee with a desire to show up for work, get her job done, whatever it may be, day after day — year after year.”
 
Bobbie shares that her motto is “not that I feel I HAVE to come in to work on Monday mornings, but that I GET to come in to work on Monday mornings!” It is all about attitude, and an individual’s attitude is a choice that everyone makes.
