“We are very pleased to add Jacob to an already strong board,” said Greg Caudill, CEO of Farmers National Bank. “He will bring youth, an entrepreneurial spirit and a strong desire to become involved in his hometown to the bank’s governing body. He is also well connected in the larger Bluegrass region, which is important to us as we continue to grow. We look forward to his contributions to our organization for many years to come.”

Tamme was a four-year football letterman at Boyle County High School. At UK, he won All-SEC athletic and academic honors. He played in the NFL for nine seasons as a member of the Indianapolis Colts, Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons.
