His wish came true

— Kevin Banks has spent the past 22 years working for a company that fills children’s heads with dreams of glass slippers, poisoned apples and a variety of talking animals and furniture since 1923.

Banks, born and raised in Greenville, works for the Walt Disney Corporation, something he’d always dreamed of, but didn’t pursue.

Before graduating in 1982 with a degree in Marketing from East Texas State University in Commerce, Banks worked for Sanger-Harris.

“I started working my way up through the department stores,” said Banks.
