    She is…

    When coming up with our plan for the Women in Business program in 2020, we really wanted to have a theme, or motto to live by and reflect on throughout the year. We strive to empower women and have them reflect on who they are and what unique gifts they were blessed with. “She is…” is what we came up with. After a lot of brainstorming to find a word that empowers, we decided to just let the reader or listener fill in their own blank.

    As we approach Thanksgiving it’s always a good practice to reflect on what we are thankful for.  At American State Bank we are very thankful for our customers and the communities we are privileged to be a part of.  While we certainly are appreciative of deposits and loans, it’s often overlooked how thankful we are for the relationships we have and the opportunities we have to be of service to others.  Serving others allows us to build teamwork and use our gifts and talents to the best of our abilities while using them for the improvement of others.  What a fulfilling role we get to play and we are thankful to our customers and…

    Community is at Our Core

    Community. It’s more than just a word, it’s a mindset. It’s not only at the core of who I am, it’s at the core of who we all are at Ambank Company. It’s what we’re passionate about. The importance of supporting our local communities stems from American State Bank being a community bank. This means we’re locally owned and operated, and we make a point to be deeply rooted in the communities that we serve. It’s the reason why Community is one of our core values. Being involved in the community is a reputation we hold to a high priority. I’ve personally served on city council or as mayor in…
