Marshall H. Jones, the hustling Assistant Cashier of the First & Citizens National Bank, was elected to the post of Cashier at the directors meeting.
The promotion of Mr. Jones is quite in keeping with his career. Tho only 30 years old he has by perseverance and application made good since he started in college in 1911. After two years’ work in college he found himself in need of money and applied for a position of assistant cashier at a salary of $1,000 a year. In the meantime, he pursued his studies at Wake Forest College, where he mastered five years’ work in four years and graduated in 1915 with A.B. and M.A. degrees to his credit.
In August 1918 he assumed the duties of Assistant Cashier of the First & Citizens National Bank of this city and since the beginning of that time has made himself a popular and efficient official.
Cecil F. Garrett, a native of Elizabeth City and a promising young business man, was elected to fill the vacancy created by the promotion of Mr. Jones. Mr. Garrett was formerly with the Norfolk-Southern Railroad which he left about three years ago in order to take up the position of teller in the Bank.
W.G. Gaither, a former Cashier, will assume the duties of active Vice-President, after having been cashier for seven years. Under his administration the bank has experienced the most rapid growth in its history.
Other officers elected at the directors’ meeting were C.H. Robinson, president; Dr. L.S. Blades, vice-president; W.C. Glover, vice-president; and M.R. Griffin, assistant cashier.
