Peoples Bank is proud to announce Employee of the Month Michelle Bright because she “Works Well Under Pressure”





Peoples Bank is proud to announce Michelle Bright as our June Employee of the Month. Michelle is being recognized because she “Works Well under Pressure”, and we’ve all witnessed how well she does! Well done and congratulations Michelle.

Originally from Texarkana, Michelle attended Texarkana College. She holds an EMT Basic License, as well as a Cosmetology License. She also received her Associates Degree in Criminal Justice. Michelle joined Peoples Bank almost two years ago, joining originally as a Customer Service Representative at our Walmart location. She was then promoted to Executive Administrative Assistant at our Downtown location where she also coordinates Board of Directors meetings, and Accounts Payable. Michelle has a full agenda every day!

When asked about the part of her job she enjoys the most Michelle shares “The best part of my job is the bank family I have the pleasure to work with, not only within the bank work hours but also volunteering within our community. I also enjoy learning new things about my position here within the bank which is something new almost every day. I’ve also learned more about the day-to-day activities and everyone’s positions within the Bank that makes us truly a great team. We are the Best Bank in Paris, Texas.”

We have Michelle’s husband Raymond Bright to thanks for bringing her here to Paris. She says “He has really been the Light of my Life. He’s not only my husband but he’s my best friend.” Michelle credits her mother Vertie Mathis for teaching her to be the woman she is today, saying “She has taught me that the way you look at things is a choice, and that choice determines who are you. I truly believe that if you think positively you stay positive, and that you should push every day to be your best.” 

Michelle has had the opportunity to share her mom’s wisdom with her own four daughters-Kortne’ (23), Felicity (19), Cassady (18), and Constance (13). Michelle currently has two granddaughters and two grandsons, with two more grandchildren to arrive in December!

In her free time Michelle loves to fish with her husband Raymond. She also enjoys watching movies, reading, eating, thrift shopping, and spending as much time with those sweet grandchildren as she can.

Michelle, all of us on the Peoples Bank team are inspired by your ability to juggle everything you do with such calm and grace, and always with a smile on your face. Your Mom has instilled in you an amazing perspective to think and act positively no matter the challenge. We’re proud to have you on the Peoples Bank team, and congratulate you on this well-deserved Employee of the Month recognition.
