Arvest Regional Manager recognized as Arkansan of the Week for his involvement in charitable causes.

WASHINGTON – Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) this week recognized David McBee as “Arkansan of the Week” for his positive work in his community. 

I would like to recognize David McBee of Gassville, Arkansas as this week’s “Arkansan of the Week,” for his charitable contributions to his North Central Arkansas community. By day, David is the regional manager at Arvest Bank’s Yellville branch, but he spends much of his free time after work and on the weekends volunteering for numerous causes in the area.

Last year, David’s leadership helped his Arvest branch become the top fundraiser in the state for the “Cotter Backpack Program”, a local charity that provides backpacks of food to school children in need. His efforts led to Cotter schools receiving the Spirit of Arkansas award two years in a row. David also spends countless hours organizing the annual Cotter Warrior 5K Color Run each fall. And earlier this year, David planned a community “Feed the Pack Day” where volunteers collected change at intersections and various other sites around the Mountain Home and Gassville area and donated the proceeds to fight hunger in the region. On the weekends, you can find David at the football field, where he is one of the voices of the Arkansas Tornados, a local semi-professional football team. I think Cotter High Principal Amanda Britt said it best when she wrote in her nomination of David, “He is always willing to step in and help for anything we need.”

David’s tireless dedication to his community is Arkansas at it’s very best and I’m proud to recognize his many contributions in this small way. David, on behalf of all Arkansans, thank you for all you do to make our state a better place.
