Mrs. Christy L. Carpenter
Mrs. Christy L. Carpenter
Springfield State Bank

Christy began her career in banking in 1989 when she took an entry level position at Springfield State Bank, which drew on her computer programming skills at the time. In her 32-year career at the bank, she has worked in every area of the bank, with a focus on technology and board administration.

She was responsible for transitioning the bank into an in-house processing center, which has had an increasingly positive effect on the banks bottom line, creating considerable savings and efficiency in the day-to-day operations. Christy also manages the bank’s marketing, audit and exam function, board administration, oversees all bank technology, asset liability management and interest rate risk and whatever else is needed.

In July 2016 Christy accepted the invitation to join the bank’s Board of Directors as well. She serves on the bank’s Audit Committee, Compliance Committee, Loan Committee, Asset Liability Management Committee, Technology Steering Committee and Succession Planning Committee. She is currently Executive Vice President of Springfield State Bank.

Aside from her day job, Christy also serves as president of the board of Blue Grass Community Bankers Association to help the cause of community banks across the state of Kentucky. She also serves on the Fiserv Precision Advisory Council, which is a national council of 25 banks across the country who have direct input on the changes and improvements to the Fiserv Precision core processing system.

Christy is currently serving as a volunteer counselor for Hosparus Health and was on the founding board of One Bridge to Hope, Inc., which is a nonprofit organization opening a sober living transitional facility for women. The facility houses recently incarcerated women and helps them transition to their next step toward freedom and a better life, preventing the chances of repeat incarceration.

Christy is a member of River of Life Church, and the Springfield Rotary Club. She also serves on the board of Central Kentucky Community Action Council.

Susan Guess is the Paducah Bank Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. Guess is a 1987 graduate of Murray State University where she earned a bachelor of science degree in public relations. She also earned a master of public administration degree at the University of Louisville.

Guess has a long history of community involvement. She was the second woman to chair the Paducah Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and only the second person to chair twice. She served as vice chair and chairwoman of the Murray State University Board of Regents during her nine-year tenure on the board. She also chaired the Lourdes Hospital Foundation Board of Directors for nine years. She served on the Kentucky Council on Post Secondary Education. Governor Beshear recently appointed her to the Kentucky Financial Institutions Board.

She was named Kentucky’s top volunteer twice. The first time was in 1998 after she chaired a campaign to build a $100,000 memorial garden at Heath High School following the school shooting. In 2015, she received the award for her anti-bullying efforts throughout the state. She won a national HUD community service award after starting Girl Scout troops in Paducah’s public housing.

She and her 20-year-old daughter, Morgan, are the co-founders of the Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation. After lobbying the governor to appoint a statewide task force on the issue, both Guesses were appointed to the Kentucky Youth Bullying Prevention Task Force. They successfully lobbied for a bill to define bullying in Kentucky. That law now provides protections for all 640,000 Kentucky students. They were both awarded the Kentucky Justice Association Consumer Safety Award in 2016 for their legislative work on the issue. In 2021, they received approval for an official Be Kind Kentucky license plate and it is scheduled to be released in June. They are donating all proceeds to the 17-youth mental health drop-in centers. She and her husband, Craig, live in Paducah.
