Ollie Mackey

“I am Ollie Mackey, a log time client of First Port City Bank. I enjoy banking there because the service is wonderful, and the staff is very friendly and helpful.  They inform you of the services that are offered and what is best for your circumstances. When I go into First Port City Bank, I feel like family because that is how you are made to feel.  It is so pleasing to see the growth and advancement opportunities provided for the staff there as well.  I wish you many, many more years of success.  GO FIRST PORT CITY BANK!!!”

Gallagher Dempsey

Before I started my business I had a lifelong dream and a plan. First Port City Bank took time to listen to me and to believe in my vision of starting the first-ever brewery in Decatur County. They have been supportive, flexible, and creative with finding ways to help me make my business goals a reality. First Port City Bank has all the tools that any big city bank would have with unparalleled local, community customer service. 

Drs. Jason & Mandy Moye

"Interactions with First Port City Bank have been nothing but superb. We originally approached FPCB in need of a home mortgage loan. Not only were we approved for the mortgage loan, but they also approved us for a home improvement loan. The simplicity and efficiency in the approval process was astounding. They discussed several different options, educated us on the differences, and allowed us to negotiate in a pressure-free environment. We couldn't have asked for a better experience from a local community bank. We, without reservation, would recommend First Port City Bank to anyone."

Mary Gant

Celebrating the many achievements and successes Ms. Mary Gant has brought to Decatur County, First Port City Bank says, “Thank you.” Ms. Gant mentored our youth over many years as a teacher and as a guidance counselor in the public-school system. She was one of the key developers of the local General Educational Development (GED) Program. 

According to an article in The Post-Searchlight, Ms. Gant graduated from Richland High School and then obtained her bachelor’s degree from Savannah State College. She subsequently moved to Bainbridge and began teaching. During this time, she attended summer school at Columbia University in New York where she obtained her master’s degree. 

Ms. Gant first began her career in education in a teaching position at Attapulgus High School, which later merged with Mt. Moriah High School to become Attapulgus-Mt. Moriah High School. After that she moved to Hutto High School (presently the site of Hutto Middle School). Having served a number of years as a school counselor at Bainbridge High School (the current site of Bainbridge Middle School), Ms. Gant retired from the Decatur County Board of Education in 1992, after a long and successful career in education. 

Ms. Gant was a key player on the team that developed the GED Program. This was initiated when Ms. Gant and others became troubled by the number of students who were dropping out of school with nothing to do.  

First Port City Bank salutes Ms. Mary Gant for her kindness and compassion for her students and fellow educators. There are not many places you can go in Decatur County without seeing someone whose life was made better by her commitment to education.
