First-Knox Names Sheets Manager, Curry Mortgage Lender

September 21, 2016

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio – Joy A. Sheets was recently named manager at the First-Knox National Bank Main Office. Levi Curry, banking officer, joined the mortgage lending department as a lender.

“We had an opening in our mortgage department for a mortgage and consumer lender. With Levi’s experience and knowledge of that line of business, it just made sense for him to make the move,” said Cindy Higgs, vice president and senior retail lender.

Curry has held lending and management roles during his seven years with First-Knox, most recently as the Main Office manager. He is a graduate of Mount Vernon High School and Mount Vernon Nazarene University. In addition, he has completed a number of banking schools and courses through the Ohio Banker’s League. Levi resides in Mount Vernon with his wife, Haylei, and children, Adelle and Maxwell.

“Levi’s transfer to mortgages not only strengthened our mortgage lending department, but also opened the door for Joy Sheets to step into the Main Office manager role,” stated Vickie Sant, president of First-Knox. “Joy has been with the corporation for 25 years and brings a variety of experience to this position. She spent a number of years as the operations manager at our Blackjack Road office before transferring to Main Office in 2015 in that same role. She’s done a terrific job for us.”

Joy is a graduate of Utica High School and Muskingum Area Technical College. She has attended a number of banking schools through the Ohio Banker’s League. Joy lives in Marengo with her husband, Steve, and children, Olivia and Zane. They are actively involved in the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League.
