Citizens National Participates in “Invention Convention”

Tyler_Brook Hill School Treasure ChestAn “Invention Convention” was held at The Brook Hill School recently in Bullard.  Third grade students had the opportunity to share with parents and teachers about the inventor that they researched and the invention that they created by looking for problems to solve in their own homes.  CNB’s Beth Parsons and Claire McNabb were on hand to hand out treasure chests to students that were made by the Grande branch teller staff.  Branch Manager Sheila Dixon said it is a very worthwhile event that Citizens was invited back to this year and she thanked Susan Boles, Nereyda Valle and Andres Diaz for their hard work on the chests.   (photo courtesy of
