Shannon Banks, left, an employee of Food City grocery’s Whitesburg store, was honored recently by Food City President Steve Smith, right, for her “outstanding volunteerism.” Banks is one of 10 Food City employees from 10 districts in Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee honored as part Food City’s annual Claude P. Varney Volunteer Recognition Program, formed at the suggestion of former President George W. Bush in 2002. Banks has worked in the store’s deli for 12 years. She volunteers with the Shriners, Eastern Star, Whitesburg ARH Ladies Auxiliary, Letcher Manor, the Help a Veteran Every Day program, the Cram Creek Pentecostal Church, the American Cancer Society, and the Letcher County Central High School Athletic Boosters Club, working the concession stand at all home football games after doing the same thing for Whitesburg High School for more than 30 years.
