MIAMI – Arvest Bank invites customers and community members alike to join in a celebration of Charise Mangum on Dec. 27.

Mangum, currently the branch sales manager for Arvest’s branch at 1405 N. Main, has worked at Arvest for more than 24 years. Cake and punch will be served throughout the day, and the public is invited to attend.

“We are all so thankful to Charise for her contributions and accomplishments not just at Arvest, but in the community as well,” said Chad Evans, president Arvest Bank Joplin. “She has been an invaluable team member for the bank, our customers and Miami. Charise will be greatly missed, but we know she is excited about retirement and spending more time with her family. We wish her all the best.”

Upon retirement, Mangum said she plans to enjoy gardening, various projects and spending time with her grandchildren.
