Reception held to honor Danny & Barbara Williams

The Integrity First Bank Board of Directors, Peitz Cancer Support House Advisory Board, Baxter Regional Hospital Foundation Executive Committee, Baxter Regional Medical Center Hospital Board and BRMC Senior Leadership Team recently hosted a reception at the Peitz Cancer Support House honoring Danny Williams, retiring president of Integrity First Bank, and his wife Barbara, a cancer survivor and retiring Peitz Cancer Support House Advisory Board Member. Integrity First Bank made a generous $10,000 donation to the Peitz Cancer Support House in honor of the Danny and Barbara Williams.

Danny attended Delta State University on an athletic scholarship and graduated in 1967. Danny is also a 1984 graduate of the Graduate School of Banking of the South at Louisiana State University. Danny began his banking career in Mississippi with Deposit Guaranty National Bank in 1970. His banking journey has taken him to Louisiana with American Bank and Trust Company; Texarkana, Texas, with Twin City Bank; Hot Springs, Arkansas, with One National Bank; Citizens Bank of Jonesboro, Arkansas; River Valley Bank and Trust of Lavaca, Arkansas; and The Union Bank of Mena, Arkansas. In 2012, he joined First National Bank & Trust, now Integrity First Bank, of Mountain Home.

Barbara has fought the battle of cancer not once, but twice. At 22 she was diagnosed with cancer, placed in a trial study and, fortunately, survived. Thirty years later, she beat cancer again by surviving breast cancer. Because of this cancer history, she dedicated herself to cancer related causes. Barbara has served on the Peitz Cancer Support House Advisory Board, been a volunteer for CARTI and a member of P.E.O., a philanthropic organization that provides scholarships and educational opportunities for women.

This past Spring, Danny and Barbara celebrated 50 years of marriage. Danny and Barbara have two sons, Carey Williams of Fayetteville and Patrick Williams of Mountain Home. They are also the proud grandparents of three grandchildren.
