Citizens National Bank honors a founder of Bossier Parish Community College with a major contribution.
On Thursday Citizens National Bank President and Chief Executive Officer Jason Smith, presented a $50,000 check to the BPCC Foundation at a meeting of its Board of Directors.
Smith said, “Citizens National Bank has recognized the value BPCC adds to our community for years. It is a privilege to be able to support the College through the BPCC Foundation. Dr. Bateman’s leadership and vision are making a tremendous difference in our Region.”
The contribution was given in memory of John R. McConathy, a founder of Bossier Parish Community College and past chairman and co-founder of Citizens National Bank.
Citizens National Bank, joined by the McConathy family, established the John R. McConathy Scholarship in Business at BPCC in 2009.
This additional contribution will facilitate the establishment of two new endowment funds to support BPCC students and faculty in Mr. McConathy’s name.
