The decision by the CREATE Foundation to give its McLean Award for Philanthropy to BNA Bank should come as no surprise to anyone who has been around New Albany for a while.
The bank has been a part of community life in this city for more than a hundred years. The bank and its employees are participants in many of the educational, cultural and civic activities that go on in our city and county.
Mike Clayborne, CREATE president, said the bank exemplifies the foundation founder George McLean’s words of accepting the responsibility of “raising the level of the people of Mississippi—economically, educationally, spiritually and otherwise.”
He presented the award to Vance Witt, chairman of the bank’s board of directors, and Bo Collins, chief executive officer and president, representing the bank’s 100 employees.
When anyone in our area thinks of looking for a sponsor or a contributor for some event or civic activity, two names always come to mind – BNA Bank and Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County. Both understand the importance of building community.
We think BNA’s commitment to the life and well-being of our community is one of the reason’s the bank is such a dominant force in banking here. Good citizenship contributes to good business.
