"I just think it's a huge honor and if it hadn't been for the Good Lord, my family, my work family and my church family, it would have been really hard to do.  I'm just very thankful," she said.

Suzi has been with Peoples Bank for 25 years and is proud of the difference the bank has made in people's lives, "It's meant that you have people who support you and care about you.  We start people with their credit and help them answer all their dreams and the things they want to do.  We invest in the community heavily," she said.

Mrs. Braddy has been a member of the business women's group for six years and is a former chapter secretary, "It's a place where we can brainstorm and do our fundraisers.  The Vidalia Onion Festival Pageant is our big one and we spend a lot of time on that, but it's a lot of emotional support, too.  It's a really good organization," she believes.

"It means a lot to me.  I appreciate the people who work with me and I always try to listen to what my employees have to say.  I'm very humbled and appreciate the employees who nominated me.  It's truly and honor.  As I was saying earlier, it's all about the people who work for me, my family, my friends and God, first and foremost."
