Steve Hart, area executive with BB&T and a 1986 Beddingfield graduate, will speak at the graduation.


On Thursday afternoon, Steve Hart returned to his desk in the BB&T Twin Towers to find a bumpy, brown paper bag.The bag was full of pecans.His secretary explained it was a Christmas gift from a BB&T customer.

The pecans were just another sign that Hart was home.Hart doesn't agree with Thomas Wolfe that "You can't go home again."
Hart has been named BB&T's new Wilson city executive.
"To me the, city exec job in Wilson is a dream job," Hart said."This is the best job in the bank in my opinion."
Hart has filled the position that was handled by Ken Powell for the past nine years.
The Wilson city exec job appealed to Hart because about 10 percent of the company's employees (about 2,000 people), are stationed in Wilson, where the bank began in 1872.The life insurance division is getting ready to move 50 more here, he said, as Wilson continues to be key for the bank.
The Wilson city exec job appealed to Hart on a personal level because Wilson is home for him and his wife, Holly, and their 13-year-old daughter.
The job is also a story about things coming full-circle.
In 1992, Hart had nine job offers when he walked across the stage at Barton College with a bachelor's degree in business management.
BB&T's offer was the lowest in pay of the nine offers.
But Hart ranked the nine offers based on "where do I think I'll enjoy working the most based on the people and the environment?"and, "which company promotes their performers?"Hart wanted to work for the same organization all his life.
BB&T topped the rankings because it didn't matter who you knew or if you had a degree from Harvard or Yale, he said.The company rewarded hard work.
Speaking from his city exec desk, Hart said obviously he made the right decision.He considers himself fortunate that he made a wise decision as a college graduate instead of taking the highest pay offer at the time.
About three years ago, BB&T executive Chris Henson asked Hart to relocate to Atlanta and help him get the new region established.
At that time, employee turnover in Atlanta was 50 percent. (Now it's one of the company's lowest.) Hart moved to Atlanta and became a BB&T regional retail banking manager.He oversaw 52 branches with 400 employees and opened 10 new branches each year.
Although Hart is proud of what was accomplished in Atlanta, he was happy to move back to Wilson about a month ago.
In Atlanta, it took Hart 1 1/2 hours to drive to the BB&T office in Buckhead from his Roswell home, even though it was just 12 miles away.Hart encountered 16 lanes of traffic.
"I'm gaining three hours of my life back every day," Hart said.
How long does it take him to drive now from his Stronwood Drive home to his window-encased office on the first floor that looks out onto shady Nash Street?About five minutes.
Hart's house here is also within walking distance of Dick's Hot Dog Stand, he said.
Overall, Hart considers himself back in "his element."
He was born in Grifton and has lived in the Wilson County area since he was 6.He grew up on a farm near Saratoga.
"It taught me work ethic , what I do now is easy compared to what I did on the farm," he said.He is a 1986 graduate of Beddingfield High School.
After graduation, Hart took off a year and a half to earn money before he enrolled in Barton College.He paid his way through college managing Burger King restaurants.
Hart worked 50 to 60 hours a week while taking full semester loads at Barton and keeping a high grade point average.
In his career at BB&T, Hart has served as a financial analyst in Business Loan Administration; a business services officer in Wilson; a corporate banker for Wilson, Pitt and Lenoir counties and a regional retail banking manager for BB&T's Wilson-based Eastern Region.
"Steve's experience and career accomplishments make him an excellent choice to serve as our market leader for the Wilson area," Danny Daniels, Eastern Region president, said in a press release.
Hart has served as president and chairman of the Wilson County United Way, president and board member of the Wilson Education Partnership, president and board member of Flynn Home, board member of Hattie Daniels Day Care Center and board member of the Salvation Army.
