Meet Our Courier, Darren Shrum!

Darren Shrum

Courier for United Southern Bank since 2006

He is an avid runner. He started running as a teenager growing up in a rural area of Illinois as a means of passing time.  After joining the military, running was part of the physical training and he maxed all his PT tests.  He participated in his first marathon in 2013 in Evansville, Indiana.  To date, he has run in 23 marathons in 15 different states.  His goal is to hit all 50 states.  He enjoys seeing highlights of America by running so he picks his marathons accordingly. In 2014, Darren started coaching cross country to students at University Heights Academy in Hopkinsville, KY.  Upon his son’s graduation from UHA in 2017, he handed off the baton to focus on completing his Bachelor’s of Science in History degree from Austin Peay State University. He graduated in August of 2018.

Darren participates in local 5k’s supporting our community and proudly representing USB.  The pictures below are from recent races in our community such as the Alzheimer’s Walk, Run for Life 5K for Alpha Pregnancy Center and the 5K for Officer Meachem Memorial Run.

 We are delighted to have Darren as part of the USB family.
