CNB’s Macon Branch recently sponsored a Power of Local Scholarship contest. Through this program, local high school seniors with a GPA of 2.5 or higher were asked to submit an application and a typewritten essay of at least 500 words on the topic of “My Career Goals and How I Plan to Meet Them.”

Shania plans to attend East MS Community College in the fall and pursue a degree in nursing. As Erin presented the scholarship, she said “Citizens National Bank knows that education is the key to a bright future, and we are pleased to make a difference in the life of a local student.”

Citizens National Bank is an independent, Mississippi-owned community bank, which has 26 bank locations in the following Mississippi communities: Meridian, Ridgeland, Madison, Flowood, Hattiesburg, Laurel, Waynesboro, Columbus, Macon, Kosciusko, Carthage, Philadelphia, Quitman, Southaven, and Olive Branch. The Bank has assets in excess of $1.3 billion and manages over $1 billion in its Wealth Management Division, which is committed to assisting clients with the accumulation, preservation, and transfer of wealth.
