East Texas roots, which is a great fit for Citizens National Bank, considering our 83 year history here in East Texas,” Brad Tidwell said. “Citizens National Bank is very excited to have the opportunity to acquire such an outstanding, conservative bank with values that mirror those of Citizens National Bank.”
