PICKENS — Jack Tinsley has played a role in the development of Pickens Savings and Loan for longer than many can remember.

Tinsley was honored recently at the company’s annual meeting with the Half Century Silver Cup by bank president Alex Gettys, an award given by the South Carolina Bankers Association to all employees and directors who have been in banking for 50 years.

Tinsley joined the board of directors of Pickens Savings and Loan on May 15, 1964, joining other directors W. E. Findley, Felix L. Finley Jr., Earle E. Morris Sr., H. L. Bivens, Dwight A. Holder, Fred G. Stewart and W. C. Singleton.

During Tinsley’s tenure as a board member, Pickens Savings and Loan transformed from a residential mortgage lender that only offered a limited type of savings products to a full service community bank.

“Jack is extremely knowledgeable about the Pickens County market, and Pickens Savings is very fortunate to have Jack on the board,” Gettys said.
