Our Core Values guide our company and they reflect our employees’ character and influence on the communities we serve.

Our employees volunteer thousands of hours in their communities. The bank participated in events and activities throughout our footprint with many unique organizations. Partnerships in our communities included the United Way, Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity, Junior Achievement and multiple Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club and Economic Development groups.
