Presented by the Greater Easley Chamber of Commerce Women’s Alliance, the Trailblazer of the Year Award recognizes a woman business leader who has enhanced the visibility and importance of women. A Trailblazer is a forerunner who leads by example and has opened the pathways for other women to follow. She is a role model, a forerunner, and an accomplished professional. At its inaugural Annual Chamber Women’s Alliance Luncheon on May 19, Adria Earwood with Park National Bank was honored as the Chamber Women’s Alliance 2022 Trailblazer of the Year.
Adria excels in professional, personal, and community leadership. As a professional, her co-workers describe her as a dynamic leader and incredible role model. As a mortgage lender, Adria has been honored by Park National Bank as the Construction Lender of the Year in 2018, 2019 and 2021. In addition, she was recognized in 2020 for loan production totaling over $25 million and was inducted into the Presidential Club of High Producers in 2021.
Adria also serves as a mentor and role model where she willfully shares her experience with others to help her associates meet goals and generate new business. And through her volunteer efforts with Anderson Interfaith Ministries, United Way and Calvary Home for Children, she also mentors young girls who are interested in a business career path
In addition to excelling in her profession, Adria also finds time to serve her community. She serves Junior League of Anderson County, Anderson Interfaith Ministries, New Foundations, United Way, the Cinderella Project, Calvary Home for Children, Anderson University Alumni Board, and Junior Leadership Anderson. She’s an avid supporter of our Easley Chamber, being a graduate of Leadership Pickens County and our Young Professionals E3 Academy, as well as serving the LPC Board of Regents and Young Professionals Steering Committee. She’s also active in her church and coaches youth volleyball.
Last but not least, Adria views her most important role as being a devoted wife and mother of two young daughters and she successfully manages the balancing act between work, community, and family.
