We are proud to be a recognized by the Abilene Chamber of Commerce as one of the best places to work in the Big Country. The bank strongly believes in a work-life balance not commonly found in financial institutions. Putting people first is a core philosophy that begins with our employees and then extends to our customers and communities we serve. Thank you, Abilene Chamber, for the recognition!
Our own Brad Hill was awarded the annual Lowell Perry Award by the Kiwanis Club of Greater Abilene. The award is given in honor of its namesake, Lowell Perry, a long-time Kiwanis member, who started the World Christian Broadcasting (WCB) organization in the late 70’s and died in a plane crash while in search of another WCB location transmitter site. Each recipient is selected by previous award winners for “exemplifying the spirit of friendliness, enthusiasm, spirituality, and service to Kiwanis”. Brad joins an exemplary group of past award winners, which includes another of our own, Kevin McSherry, who also received the Lowell Perry Award in 2014.
Brad has served consistently in Kiwanis since 2010 and is committed to the group's values, which is dedicated to serving the children in our community.
At Coleman County State Bank, we have long believed that small businesses are the lifeblood of our community. They are owned and operated by our neighbors, local entrepreneurs who are not only invested in their personal successes, but that of the community’s and its future. As a community bank, we strive to support such small business owners, to bring to life their dreams of operating independently and flourishing. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve adapted quickly to this changing climate and the immediate financial needs of our small business customers. We’re working countless hours to ensure all our customers quickly receive funding from the Paycheck Protection Program, helping keep their businesses alive and their employees paid. We welcome the opportunity to help you and your business succeed.

Our very own Tammy Withers, Vice President of our mortgage center, and Misti Collier, Branch Manager for our loan production office (LPO), were event chairs for the 2019 Cattle Barron’s Ball. Under their leadership, the single-night fundraiser greatly surpassed their goal and successfully raised over $300,000 to benefit the American Cancer Society.
Misti Collier, LPO Branch Manager, was awarded by the Abilene Chamber of Commerce with its 2019 Chairman’s Award at the 111th Annual Meeting and Membership Celebration. Recognition was given to individuals who have far exceeded their participation within the Abilene Chamber. Year after year, Misti has consistently served the Abilene community through various organizations such as Leadership Abilene, Abilene Cattle Barron’s Ball, Junior Achievement of Abilene, and Abilene Young Professionals, to name just a few.
The United Way of Abilene awarded Coleman County State Bank with the 2019 Small Business Campaign of the Year. The bank matched 100% of donations raised by the 22 employees at the Abilene branches, which resulted in a 102% increase in participation from 2018. We are proud of our ongoing relationship with the United Way of Abilene, which is integral in meeting the health, educational, and financial needs of our neighbors in 19 counties in West Central Texas.
The annual PRCA Rodeo, one of the largest events in the county, has been held at the Coleman Arena for more than 80 years. In 2018, the bank sponsored the addition of box seats above the newly-named Coleman County State Bank Arena's bucking chutes, allowing for a front-row experience of the action. It also elevated the rodeo “to the next level,” Coleman Rodeo Association President, Heath Hemphill, told Coleman Today in May 2017.
Coleman County State Bank has always been a loyal supporter of rodeo, ag, and 4H programs in our community. We believe this expansion to the arena further solidifies our support of and belief in the importance of rural
