The career of Dick Trammel, legendary Northwest Arkansas businessman and University of Arkansas cheerleader, was celebrated Monday.
Recently, Trammel, the executive vice president and community and business relations adviser for Arvest Bank, announced his retirement.
Community members came together to celebrate Trammel’s last day at the bank’s location in Rogers.
Though after 43 years, Trammel won’t be returning to his desk at Arvest. He said he won’t be disappearing from the community.
“I’m not through. I’m going to continue to support good causes, good people and good things and try to make our place a better place to live, work and play like we have all these years,” Trammel said.
In addition to working at Arvest, Trammel also served as the commissioner of the Arkansas Highway Commission. His term expires at 12 a.m. Tuesday.
Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced recently that Keith Gibson from Fort Smith will take his place.
