BOCB Winners

And the Winners Are...

We were blown away, yet again, by this year’s Best of Community Banking Award submissions. Our bank members should be commended for the outstanding work they do both in their banks and in their communities. Special congratulations to First Convenience Bank (Mesquite), a division of First National Bank Texas (Killeen), for its Nexus Teen Residential Program partnership that received the 2017 Best of Show Award.
