CONVERSE, Ind., Jan. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- First Farmers Financial Corp. (OTCQX: FFMR), parent company of First Farmers Bank & Trust, released a public announcement last month regarding a new corporate wage and community support program in response to federal legislation affecting corporate tax rates. The goal was to reinforce commitment to local communities and to employees. The response to the announcement exceeded expectations and the organization received national media coverage. Inquiry from the office of Senator Todd Young led to further discussion on the new programs and their expected impact to First Farmers employees and local communities. As a result of the discussion, bank CEO Gene Miles will represent bank leadership and shareholders and Chelsee Hatfield, Windfall, will represent bank staff impacted by the new wage program at the Presidential State of the Union address in Washington, DC on Jan 30, 2018 as guests of Sen. Young. "Both Gene and Chelsee are proud to be representing the organization. Their goal for the trip is to demonstrate the hard work and dedication of our employees and extoll the virtues and corporate philosophy of First Farmers Bank & Trust. We are going to do our best to share this unique experience with our staff and customers by documenting the trip on our corporate website and social media."
