SHREVEPORT, LA. – RSHVNEWS.COM and Citizens National Bank of Shreveport announced today a long-term partnership agreement that makes the local bank the title sponsor of the high school coach of the week.
“I am excited to welcome Citizens National Bank as the newest title sponsor into video and much more for the online news source,” said RSHV Business Development Manager Ronald Oswalt.
Jason Smith, CEO of Citizens National Bank, said, “We are always looking for ways to support local businesses in our community. By partnering with RSHV, it will allow us to showcase the men and women coaches that give so much of their time developing confident young adults.“
It was an ambitious enterprise back in 1985 when the First Citizens National Bank opened for business, especially since the local and national economies were in a downturn. The more prominent, stronger institutions were acquiring many of the smaller banks while other banks were facing closure by the regulatory authorities.
However, that first group of local businessmen believed their concept of a locally owned and managed bank was viable. A bank that provided modern banking services with a personal, one-on-one connection to financial expertise was, at this time, a rarity. Their sharp instincts and business insights proved them right.
The bank can be proud of the fact that their values and purpose have stayed just as strong as they were as the day they opened their doors. Today, Citizens National Bank has 12 locations in Caddo, Bossier, Desoto, Claiborne, and Webster Parishes. The dynamic growth enables Citizens to serve more communities by offering a wide range of banking products and services backed by capital strength to their market areas.
