For Overton Terry Gibson, trust is more than a banking term.  

“I guess the main thing that I’m proud of is being their friend, being their banker, having their trust,” Gibson said as she retired as a customer service representative after 49 years with Trustmark National Bank in Selma. 

Originally from Uniontown where her family had a farm, Gibson began her banking career in Selma in 1971 at the age of 21 with Virginia Colee in the check order department at Trustmark predecessor The Peoples Bank & Trust Company. Later, she and Margaret Stokes created the bank’s word processing department.
