Recently retired Old National Bank Western Kentucky Region President Peggy Williams was honored Wednesday with a cookout and short ceremony in her honor.
It all led up to Greenville Mayor Jan Yonts officially declaring July 3 “Peggy Williams Day.” Williams was also surprised with a street near Old National Bank in Greenville being named, “Peggy Williams Way,” in her honor.
Williams first began her 43-year career working at First State Bank in Greenville.
Later, Williams became Muhlenberg County’s first female bank president.
Williams, who received Old National’s Larry Dunigan Leader of the Year Award in 2007, is also a strong community leader.
She is a Chairperson for the Muhlenberg Alliance for Progress and a member of the Muhlenberg County Opportunity Center Board of Directors and the Felix E. Martin Jr. Board of Directors.
Because of her support for education and participation on the Muhlenberg Campus Advisory Committee and MCC Nominating Board, Williams was also recognized by Madisonville Community College as a Benefactor of the Year.
“To stand here and list all of Peggy’s contributions and accomplishments over the years would take much longer than we have,” Yonts said. “But her willingness to serve and her dedication to these causes and so many more, sets a great example of what being a community leader is all about.”
