TALLULAH LEADS to Pinnacle Bank


I led Mike to one of the tallest buildings in Downtown Jasper, the home of Jasper Main Street member and contributor, Pinnacle Bank.  

The Downtown Jasper Corporate Office with branches in Vestavia, Trussville, Gardendale, Sumiton, Haleyville and Hwy 78 also houses the Alabama Surface Mining Commission.  

Pinnacle Bank’s President Bob Nolen, and Vice-President of Jasper Main Street, along with my uncle and also Executive Vice-President of Pinnacle Bank, Bert Hendrix, continue renovations to the Downtown Jasper Corporate Office.  

Bob Nolen credits Jasper Main Street’s progress with his and his board of directors’ willingness to invest in their downtown location. Mike might be the face, but only I know how many people he cajoles into helping him with the revitalization of Downtown Jasper with their investments of resources. His office is a revolving door of Downtown Jasper volunteers and contributors. They interrupt a lot of good naps.

When I walk into the doors of Pinnacle Bank, I head straight for the teller line where I collect a treat from everyone; I don’t skip anyone. After that, I go see my favorite Pinnacle man, Ronnie Shaw, who has worked at Pinnacle for 41 years and is still on probation. He has treats in his office and stops whatever he is doing to greet me.  And while I do love Ronnie, his wife Karen must have her hands full.

After a trek on the 1st floor, Bert took me to the 3rd floor to see the newly-renovated Operations Center with more renovations to come, where I found my friend Jeanette Burton who has been with Pinnacle Bank for 35 years. She wanted me to shake hands with her (like I didn’t know how to do that). I didn’t let her know that I can do much more, like write this article.

In addition to Pinnacle Bank’s contributions, they are also responsible for building the first Downtown Jasper map, a project that Bert and Mike worked on together, which is housed in front of their ATM on 2nd Avenue. If you’re new to town, come to the map, and you can find all the Jasper Main Street members and know where to find all our services, including where to shop and eat.

As I exit Pinnacle, I generally lead Mike toward the drive-through, where I usually see one or two of my readers. I saw one of my favorites just yesterday, Emelil Bankhead Humphries, my namesake’s relative who always stops for me. I just hopped in the line and greeted her with my smile, and she reciprocated.

Thanks to my humans at Pinnacle for allowing me to lead Mike around the bank where they tout Loyal Leadership, Local Decision Making, and Superior Service.
