Little helps people with financial, spiritual goals


Together: Arleshia Little works at BB&T.

Arleshia Little was taught early to contribute. As a child, her parents instilled in her a desire to do as they did and help others, and that desire has carried over into her adult life today.

As a leader-bank officer with BB&T she helps others achieve their financial goals, and as a minister's wife she works with people on their spiritual goals as well. Little's husband serves as pastor of Springfield Missionary Baptist Church in Newborn and Little works as a youth assistant and director of the church's dance ministry.

"I have various opportunities to demonstrate my leadership abilities and to integrate my faith and spirituality to encourage and inspire throughout Newton County," she said

Little is also an ambassador for the Newton County Chamber of Commerce, participates with the Service Guild of Covington in the sophomore Spirit of Excellence Leadership forum and in the Leadership Newton County Development program.

After graduating from high school in Rockdale County, Little went on to attend Clayton State College and began a career in banking and finance. Although she has seen much growth within the county in her years working here, she chooses to focus on the positive aspect of such growth.

"I often reflect back when Newton County was just a small town," she said. "I've chosen to focus on the positive aspects of such growth which would include increased membership within the church and increasing business and networking opportunities in the banking and finance industry.

"It gives me the satisfaction of personally knowing that I'm making a difference in the community and impacting others' lives in a way that will help them improve and enhance their quality of life."
