Summer internships were few and far between during a COVID-disrupted 2020, but Pansy Johnson landed one with Arvest Bank. The experience provided clarity to her career path as she finished course work at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway.
“I knew that I wanted to stay in banking and stay with Arvest,” said Johnson, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in public relations and a minor in marketing two years ago.
The Fordyce native initially pursued a degree in broadcast journalism, but a different area of study caught her fancy. “I enjoyed my public relations classes so much that I switched majors,” Johnson said. “They really prepared me for my job with Arvest.”
She started work full time with the bank as an administrative assistant overseeing property management accounts for the Little Rock operations of the bank.
Johnson joined the Arvest treasury management team as a sales specialist supporting commercial and corporate clients in October 2021.
She recently joined the Junior League of Little Rock and serves on the Minority Enterprise Development Week Committee for the Little Rock Regional Chamber.
Johnson has begun work on her MBA with Louisiana State University in Shreveport.
