The senior vice president and branch manager of Wellington State Bank in Littlefield has been presented the '2016 Distinguished Banking Service Award.' Gary Green received the honor on Friday (Nov. 4) at the 44th annual Bankers Agricultural Credit Conference (BACC) held at Texas Tech University's International Cultural Center.
"Gary Green's service to the agricultural banking industry and the community of Littlefield has been significant," said Phillip Johnson, chairman of Tech's Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics and director of the university's Thornton Agricultural Finance Institute.
