Halsey has been named as loss mitigation specialist. She has served as the bank’s head of Loan Operations Department since 2012. Halsey became a full-time loan department banker at FSB in 2007.

A Noble High School graduate, Halsey attended the University of Oklahoma. She continues her banking education by attending classes offered through Oklahoma City Community College, Professional Banking Services and the Oklahoma Bankers Association.

“Allyson is a very dedicated banking professional,” King said. “We are so pleased that she contributes to FSB’s services every day. She clearly demonstrates to our customers, as well as to our staff, the FSB philosophy of treating others how we would want to be treated.”

Bryant was promoted to drive-thru supervisor at Noble location. She joined the FSB staff in 2008 and assisted in various departments at both the Noble and Norman locations as needed before being assigned a teller position later that year. Bryant was promoted to lobby teller in 2010.

A graduate of Coweta High School, Bryant studied social work at the University of Oklahoma for three years. She has served the Noble community through her involvement in the Boy Scouts of America Troop 222 and her church.

“Sheila enjoys getting to know people and finding ways to help every one of our customers with their banking needs,” King said.

Mallory has been promoted to assistant branch manager of First State Bank in Norman, according to Vicki Clary, human resources officer for the Noble-based bank.

Mallory began working at the Noble location in July 2006 as a teller. Duties she has performed include deposit services representative, lobby teller and ACH coordinator. Also, in 2009, she accepted a position as new accounts representative. In May, Mallory was promoted to personal banker/assistant branch manager in Norman.
