First Southern National Bank booster the Caldwell County High School Athletic Department.

Over the last three weeks, fourth-year tournament director Torey Hammett has been slowly — but surely — revealing the highly-anticipated field for the 2020 West Kentucky Hoops Classic.

Lausanne Collegiate School (Memphis), the 2020 Tennessee Division II Class A State Boys’ Basketball champion, caps what looks to be one of the strongest fields yet for the annual Christmas tournament — set for Dec. 28-29 at the CAB in Princeton.

The face of the Lynx? It’s 2021 five-star center Moussa Cisse, who earlier this week narrowed his college of choice to 10 teams: Kentucky, Memphis, the University of Southern California, Georgetown, Georgia, Alabama, Florida State, Tennessee, Illinois and LSU.

She spent 18 years serving in various capacities with the YMCA throughout Western Kentucky and Tennessee as well as the local Chamber of Commerce, before returning to her financial roots in banking in 2010. With over 15 years in the banking and commercial lending industry, Shelton will partner with an experienced loan and business development team in Western Kentucky to build a new First Southern National Bank presence in Hopkinsville.

“Betsy is a perfect fit for First Southern National Bank. I couldn’t be more excited to have her join our team,” says Alex Keltner, Bank President. “It’s exciting to find a team member who is so community-minded, with immense knowledge of banking and extensive experience serving non-profits. There is no doubt she will be a valuable member of our team.”

“I am so excited to be joining an organization that loves and cares for their clients, employees, and the community!” said Shelton. “I’m blown away with the service-focused mindset that First Southern has. It will be a blessing to be able to give back to my community, while also expanding my career professionally.”
