Marc Smitherman, CTA, Blount County, TN
Branch Manager, United Capital Lending

"Our area is a Mecca for Motorcyclist from around the country. There is a unique pathway here known as ‘The Dragon.” On one particular occasion, I had stopped to get gas when about 6 motorcyclists stopped to get gas as well. I could sense they were somewhat lost as they were looking at a map. I offered my assistance, and offered them my business card in the event they needed additional help. About a week later, I received a nice card thanking me for my help, and lunch was on them upon their return. This was nothing more than a random act of kindness my CTA training taught me."
