Rusk County Black History Association presented Linda Cooper, an employee of Citizens National Bank of Henderson, with the Humanitarian Award at the county’s Black History Gala on February 2nd. Linda was recognized for her commitment to Rusk County and as a trailblazer in Rusk County history.
Linda graduated from Navarro Jr. College and began her banking career in 1976 being hired as the first black employee in banking (First National Bank) in Rusk County. She started at the bottom working her way through nearly every department, taking several banking classes along the way, and is now Vice-President of Citizens National Bank in charge of the teller staff at 25 branches.
Linda spends countless hours giving back to her community by either volunteering her time, serving as a mentor or serving on one of many boards such as the Henderson Lionnettes Booster Club, the Rusk County Child Advocacy Center or a host of others.
Linda has been recognized for her efforts in the Rusk County community as well as within the banking industry. She was recently recognized at the Martin Luther King Program for her accomplishments in business and was also recognized by the Independent Bankers Association of Texas (IBAT) and presented with the IBAT Award for Leadership.
Linda is married, has two sons and 7 grandchildren.
Linda, you make CNB proud! Congratulations!
Gloria King has been selected as the Employee of the Month for May 2014. Gloria is an Administrative Assistant in the Trust Department at the Downtown Longview location. One of her nominations said, “That Gloria is a dedicated, hard-working employee is obvious to anyone who meets her. Not only does she do her job at the expected level, but she consistently goes above and beyond to help Gordon (Northcutt) and our trust clients. Often those with ‘assistant’ in their title are overlooked and undervalued, but I think Gordon would agree that Gloria is indispensable to him and to the customers. I know of an instance recently where she went to a client’s rental property to assist the client in preparing the home for sale. I know of another time that she went to a storage unit with Gordon to help prepare the items inside for an estate sale. I doubt any of that stuff is in her job description, yet she does it willingly, with a good attitude and a big smile.” Gloria will receive a $50 Gift Certificate to a restaurant of her choice and will be recognized company-wide by Brad Tidwell, President and CEO. Congratulations, Gloria! Well deserved!
Citizens National Bank’s Front Street Branch in Tyler participated in the “Dia del Nino” (Childrens Day) event on April 22, 2014 in the branch’s neighborhood. Each year, businesses from a neighboring shopping center get together to celebrate the children by donating toys and food. The bank participated by partnering with Elite Bicycles of Tyler and together, donated 14 bicycles to area children.
Branch Manager Jesus Vera and his staff set up a table at the event and served popcorn and gave out information about bank products. Employees that participated were Nereyda Valle, Adriana Valdovinos, Andy Diaz and Nancy Cornelio. Thank you to Jesus and his staff for giving back to their community!
