Corsicana-based Community National Bank & Trust of Texas celebrated the addition of a full-service branch in Waxahachie with a grand opening event on May 11. The event commenced with a double ribbon cutting provided by the Waxahachie Chamber of Commerce and Red Oak Chamber of Commerce, both of which the bank holds membership.
“The bank has been a member of our boards for many years and is always present at local events,” Clint Woodward, Red Oak Chamber CEO, told KBEC Radio. “The ripple effect that they’ve had on our communities has been a remarkable thing to see.”
A variety of local community leaders attended, including Mayor David Hill, city council members, Waxahachie ISD school board members and many small-business owners who benefitted from the bank’s facilitation of Paycheck Protection Program loans. Guests were invited to tour the 27,000 square-foot facility, which includes a shared meeting space capable of hosting 85 people. Attendees also toured the open lease space available for local organizations seeking a place to do business.
“We’ve been in Waxahachie for some time, operating out of our loan production office downtown—but we’re setting up roots on Highway 77 and look forward to making a difference in this community,” says Alfred Vega, chief credit officer. “With this full-service branch, shared meeting facilities and Class A office space for business owners, we are really taking strides to be a huge asset to Waxahachie.”
Established in 1960, Community National Bank & Trust of Texas ended 2020 with $900 million in assets and employs more than 200 bankers in 14 locations across Texas.
