Miss Mollie Center was born to Tom and Jane Center in Scott County in 1887. She spent her life in this area with an
outstanding passion for helping people in need. She joined the First Baptist Church while still a young woman and
remained a faithful member for the rest of her life.
Among her many services to her church was her office as treasurer, a post she filled for more than 40 years. She
served as trustee for Arkansas Baptist Home for the Children at Monticello for 14 years and was ever eager to show
her love and concern for the children. One favorite project was furnishing and delivering large quantities of
strawberry preserves to the Home.
She was associated with the Bank of Waldron for almost 50 years, working as teller and cashier in the Bank and
serving as a member of its board of directors and as vice president. It can be truly said that she knew and loved
the people of Scott County.
A sincere salute to Miss Mollie. Happy Birthday U.S.A.
