The Arlington Bank recently recognized Anna Sprout and Karen Friend as their employees of the quarter for the first half of 2010. The bank unveiled its "Extra Mile" employee of the quarter award at a ceremony to recognize employee outstanding service.

Bank president Tom Westfall presented Sprout and Friend with a certificate recognizing the awards and unveiled a plaque that will be on permanent display at each of the Arlington Bank locations.

"It is an honor to present Anna and Karen with this award," said Westfall. "They are both shining examples of the characteristics that the 'Extra Mile' award promotes."

To celebrate exceptional service and to show their appreciation for one employee that is particularly outstanding, the Arlington Bank initiated the 'Extra Mile' employee of the quarter recognition program. This program recognizes one employee every quarter who shows excellence in both customer service and dedication to the organization.
