Marianne Candelario Celebrates 55th Year with Bank
First National Bank of Santa Fe employee Marianne Candelario celebrated her 55th year with the Bank with a staff celebration thanking her for her years of dedicated service. Marianne began working at First National as a teller in 1957 when she was just 20 years old. Since that time she has held a variety of positions in several departments including trust services, auditing and loan administration.
In addition to her long-standing service to the Bank, Marianne is a pillar of the Santa Fe community and has worked closely with the Fiesta Council since 1982. Every year Marianne volunteers at the Fiesta Information Booth located just outside the Bank’s Main Office on the Plaza.
The Bank was pleased to present Marianne with the gift of a hand-carved retablo of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The retablo was carved by local artist Lawrence Cordova, a Santa Fe native with pieces featured in the permanent collection at the International Folk Art Museum.
Reflecting on her 55 years, Marianne said "Working at First National Bank has been the greatest part of my life. I enjoy it and the people I work with…I’ve been here for 55 years and now I’m working on 56!"
