As an independent community bank, we believe there is a major advantage to doing business with a locally owned bank such as Citizens National Bank, where our customers' needs are met by banking professionals who live in the same community. While more and more community banks have been acquired by larger regional banks, with a "one size fits all" philosophy, we remain steadfast in our commitment to stay independent, to stay focused on Mississippi, and to help our customers to grow and prosper. Our banking professionals take the time to understand the specific needs of our customers, and all decisions are made as quickly as possible at the local level.
There is a true advantage to banking with an independent community bank that has been in business for 133 years, and we promise to continue working hard to earn our customers' trust each and every day.
Whereas, we the shareholders, directors, and employees of Citizens National Bank all consider ourselves stakeholders in the success and profitability of Citizens National Bank; and
Whereas, we further pledge our commitment to the Banks more than 100-year old tradition of serving others and preserving community banking in Mississippi,
Now, therefore, we declare our intention to remain an independent and locally owned bank staffed by caring and knowledgeable community bankers who listen, understand, and dedicate themselves to doing everything possible to help fulfill the earthly dreams of the good people of Mississippi.
