For the third consecutive year, Arvest Bank will honor teachers by awarding 116 educators with a total of $58,000 in prize money.

The decision to award 116 $500 gifts to individual teachers was made not only out of respect and appreciation for the work teachers do, but as a sign of support at a time when many schools continue to face budget challenges. All prizes will go to teachers who work at state-funded schools.

“Commitment to community is something we take seriously at Arvest, and it is our pleasure to recognize these teachers, who do so much for our children and our communities,” Arvest president and CEO Kevin Sabin said. “We know they work hard every day to give all of us a better future, and we hope these awards help show how much we appreciate them.”

To nominate a teacher to receive one of the $500 prizes, look for an Arvest Bank Facebook post about this contest during the week of Oct. 15-21. Include the teacher’s name, school name, city, and one sentence describing why that teacher deserves to win.

Arvest Takes Top Reader Honors in Oklahoma City

Category: Arvest News

The Journal Record in Oklahoma City has releases the results of its second-ever Reader Rankings, and for the second year in a row, Arvest Bank has received prominent recognition. 

Before we get to the specifics, let’s look at how the Reader Rankings were compiled. For starters, The Journal Record posted an online ballot with 52 categories encompassing the areas of construction and design, energy, entertainment, finance/accounting, general business, health care, higher educations, hospitality, legal services, real estate and information technology. 

Readers were then notified of the ballot via direct emails and print ads. In total, more than 600 businesses and organizations were listed on the official online ballot.                                                           

Voting took place from March 5-April 16, and the surveys generated more than 2,250 responses from across Oklahoma. The results were tallied to come up with the list of award-winning businesses, and that brings us back to Arvest. 

We are proud to share the following categories, in which Arvest Bank and Arvest Wealth Management took top honors: 

Best Bank for Business Based Outside Oklahoma

1.     Arvest Bank

2.     JP Morgan Chase Bank

3.     Bank of America 

Best Bank for Small Business

1.     Arvest Bank

2.     Great Plains Bank

3.     BancFirst 

Best Wealth Management Provider

1.     Arvest Wealth Management

2.     Morgan Stanley Wealth Management

3.     Heritage Trust 

Additionally, The Journal Record recognized and celebrated the winners on June 14, at an event held at the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City. We are sure it was said that night, but let us say it again… 

Congratulations to Arvest Bank and Arvest Wealth Management!

OKC’s Cross Recognized Among Achievers Under 40

Friday, May 25 at 12:00 PM
Category: Arvest News

Arvest Bank is pleased to announce Ryan Cross has been recognized by The Journal Record as a member of its 2018 Achievers Under 40 class.


Cross, a vice president and commercial banker for Arvest in Oklahoma City, and the other honorees were recognized not just in a recent print version of The Journal Record, but an event held May 10 at Embassy Suites Oklahoma City Downtown/Medical Center.

“Ryan’s knowledge and proactive approach has made him an outstanding member of our team,” Ron Witherspoon, president and CEO of Arvest in Oklahoma City, said in Cross’ profile. “He is an excellent representation of dedication to his work and to his community, and I feel confident in Ryan’s abilities and integrity.”

Cross has worked in the banking industry since graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a finance and international business degree. He’s also currently enrolled in the Oklahoma Bankers Association Intermediate Banking School and will attend the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado as a second-year student this summer.

The profile also highlighted Cross’ work as a volunteer, especially his efforts on behalf of March of Dimes. As the 2017 chairman for the Oklahoma City March for Babies, according to his profile, Cross helped surpass the sponsorship goal of $75,000 to more than $100,000 and went over the $200,000 event goal to more than $250,000.

“My twins were born 12 weeks premature in 2005, and without the March of Dimes research on surfactant and the other lifesaving care that my twins received, they would not be alive today,” Cross said in the profile. “I continue to be proud to give back to such a great organization.”

Kudos to Cross for walking the “People helping people” walk in more ways than one!
