Gary Brown honored by Texas Bankers

The Texas Bankers Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Texas Bankers Association, honored Gary E. Brown of Friona with the 50-Year Banker Award during a special luncheon held at the 129th annual TBA convention in San Antonio. The prestigious award honors bankers with a half century or more of service and dedication to the banking industry.

Brown is president and CEO of Friona Interbank. He started his banking career in 1963 as an agriculturist in loan operations for Friona State Bank.

He has served as President of the Chamber of Commerce and two terms on the Friona City Council. He is also past president of Friona Evening Lions Club, chairman of the Friona United Way, and has been active in Parmer County Junior Livestock Shows.

The Texas Bankers Association is the largest and oldest state bankers association in the nation, serving Texas bankers since 1885.
