by Austin Bank 21. December 2018 15:30

This month’s Star is a true asset to Austin Bank.  Her work ethic, loyalty and dedication set an example for all of us to follow.  Please join us in congratulating Maebeth Cotton, Marketing and Financial Literacy Officer, on her selection as our December Star of the Month.

Maebeth joined the Austin Bank family in July 2012 as the Marketing Assistant and positioned herself as an indispensable team member. In 2016, she was promoted to Marketing and Financial Literacy Officer.  “Maebeth is a responsible perfectionist,” says Patty Steelman, SVP/Director of Marketing.  “She works independently, a problem solver and gets the job done – on time and under budget.”   With that attitude her role continues to expand including- but not limited to – administrator of social media posting and monitoring; website design and maintenance; message on hold; financial literacy and EverFi school program; scholarship program; star of the month article; assists with events; photographer; promotional item and print inventories, and then … whatever is needed next.  


Maebeth can build an ad or a playhouse.  While serving as an Executive Committee Member for Habitat for Humanity of Smith County Playhouses on the Plaza fundraiser, Maebeth and her husband, Stephen, designed and built an Austin Bank playhouse to be auctioned off.  The playhouse was complete with electricity, teller counter, ATM and drive thru window. For her efforts, she received the 2017 Community Service Volunteer Officer CRA Related Award.  John and Karen Williams are the proud owners of the playhouse.


A Tyler native, Maebeth holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Louisiana Baptist University. Maebeth and her husband, Stephen, live in Jacksonville where they are very active members of the community and Central Baptist Church.  She has one daughter, Alyssa, who is currently attending Tyler Junior College on a band scholarship.  Maebeth is an excellent cook, sews, paints, an avid Pinterest advocate and loves her four Chihuahuas.  



“Maebeth is such an asset to our organization.  She is truly a “Jill of all trades”!  From sharing photography duty to assistance with our newsletters to her full time job in marketing, you can always depend on Maebeth to be available to help.   I like her attitude and willingness to help the team succeed.”

Lynn Littlejohn, EVP/Human Resources, Jacksonville

Dawn DeVillers, Executive Administrative Officer, Jacksonville


“Maebeth continuously goes out of her way to help both our external and internal customers.  She continually monitors our Facebook page to answer the concerns of our customers in an expeditious manner.  Additionally, she is always quick to reply when we need things internally and keeps us all organized and on task.  She is a true star and makes us all look good!”

Lisa McCoy, SVP/eBanking Manager, Jacksonville
