How a poor Tennessee boy with only a high school has education spent 67 years as a beloved banker

Instead, he took a job as a clerk in the transit department at Third National Bank on Fourth and Church

And the first thing Willie McDonald did every morning was sit at a huge table covered in mail - the snail delivery kind. He opened envelopes from banks across Middle Tennessee, north Alabama and southern Kentucky.
