Chelsee Hatfield plans to use her forthcoming raise and bonus to help pay for classes toward an associate’s degree at Indiana Wesleyan University, as well as her children’s future college expenses. 

“These steps taken as a result of tax reform are specifically affecting me and small communities like my hometown of Windfall,” said Hatfield, who is a teller at First Farmers Bank & Trust in Tipton.

Hatfield and Gene Miles, president and CEO of First Farmers Bank & Trust, have been invited by U.S. Sen. Todd Young, R-Ind., to attend the State of the Union speech.

Hatfield said she is “thrilled for the opportunity to come to the nation’s capital for the first time and experience the State of the Union address. “We’re not a very large bank, and to be invited by Senator Young and given the opportunity to tell our story is very special.”
