This Veterans Day, we’re saluting the people who have served our country in the armed forces. We’re proud to share two of our own associates’ stories of their time in the military and how their paths brought them to Minster Bank.

Stephanie Hamby, U.S. Army Reserve

Stephanie works in the loan operations department at the Minster Bank corporate office. Behind the scenes, she makes sure all of the loans are up to date and helps keep the department running smoothly.

Stephanie’s a newer employee at Minster Bank and came from a job at a bigger bank, where she worked during her time serving as a military police officer in the U.S. Army Reserve. 

Stephanie served for six years with a unit from Columbus and detachment in Troy, Ohio.

Now, she said she’s already loving her new position at Minster Bank: “I came from a big national bank. And the difference in the community focus is just huge. (At the previous bank) they were losing that community focus; the focus was on big cities and sales. I just wanted something that was smaller and had a more tight-knit family feeling at work.”

Scott Neth, U.S. Marines

Scott Neth, Vice President, Retail Banking for Minster Bank, is the third generation of his family to serve in the Marine Corps.

“My grandfather was in the Marines, my father was in the Marines and my brother was also in the Marines with me,” said Neth.

Neth went to boot camp in Parris Island, S.C., before being stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C. He served as a Fiscal Budget Technician, handling accounts all along the eastern seaboard and in parts of Europe.

He explained that his work in the Marines was good preparation for his job now.

“The basic concepts are the same, and I think you can apply them to other situations. It gave me a good base to work with,” he said.

Being a Marine also gave Neth a strong sense of his own values: “You’ve got to work hard and do the right thing,” he said.

Neth attained the rank of Corporal during his time in the service. Afterward, he attended The Ohio State University and finally came to work at Minster Bank in May 2017.

Neth encourages veterans returning to the workforce to seek out support from their peers.

“Be proud of your service,” he said. “Being in the service and serving our country earns a lot of respect right away. There are a lot of other veterans out there who are willing to help you out.”
