Mobley joined Regions as a teller in 2001. At the time, she was a
freshman at Arkansas State University-Beebe. She worked full-time while
she earned her degree. ASU-Beebe was an ideal fit for her situation.
"Some graduate high school and go straight to a traditional four-year
university; that was not an option for me. I needed to work in order to
help support my family while attending school," Mobley said. "ASU-Beebe
made it possible for me to take classes before and after work hours. It
has always stuck with me."
Mobley promotes her alma mater often and raises money for its students.
She was named the ASU-Beebe Alumnus of the Year in 2015 and now chairs
the school's development council. Regions is donating $1,000 to the
school in honor of Mobley's Better Life Award.
Mobley's outreach extends beyond the ASU-Beebe campus to young
professionals in the greater Searcy community. She helped establish the
Future Fund for the White County Community Foundation. The endowment is
funded by young professionals who annually select nonprofit
organizations to receive Future Fund grants.
Mobley also facilitates the Searcy Leadership Institute, an annual
10-month session that introduces young professionals to state
government, the benefits of teamwork and the concept of identifying
"It's important to familiarize them with the issues that affect the
community, to give them opportunities to be forces of change," Mobley
said. "We're not only engaging the leaders of today, we're securing good
leadership for tomorrow."
Mobley is chair of the Searcy Regional Chamber of Commerce board of
directors and is a Searcy Regional Economic Development Corporation
board member. A
video about Mobley's community work can be seen on the Regions
Financial YouTube channel.
