He has been a member of Jaycees, the Elks organization, the Fair Board and president of Bank Administrations Institute for Western Ky. Doug worked at Firestone and The Ky New Era before he got into banking. He worked in banking for more than 40 years. He retired from Planters Bank in December of 2018.

They danced in the Jr. Auxiliary Follies “Back in the Day” when Sallie was a Jr. Auxiliary member. Sallie and Doug look forward to “Dancing the Night Away” as a way to support Sanctuary and the Pennyroyal Arts Council!! They realized the importance of Sanctuary for children and mothers because it was located in Sallie’s school district when she was Assistant Principal at MLK. They both value the Arts Council realizing the importance of its mission of promoting an appreciation of the Arts in our community. Sallie was honored to serve on its board from 2015-2018.
