Good luck Lindsay!
Let’s catch up with another one of our past Queen Candidates, Courtney Orwoll, who ran in 2008:
I am currently living in Montrose, MN with my husband Jeremy and 7 month old son, Mason! Since running for Miss Hutchinson I have graduated from college, got married, and started a family. I recently opened Amazing Grace Boutique in downtown Hutchinson. My mom and I own it together. It is so exciting to be back in Hutchinson! One thing I loved about running for Miss Hutchinson was being so involved in the community and getting to meet so many new people! It really made me realize how great of a community we have and how supportive our town is; which is one of the many reasons I opened my boutique here.
Brittany Witte ran for Miss Hutchinson in 2010 and was CB&T’s candidate. Let’s see where she is now:
I am currently working for a private family foundation in Fargo, North Dakota. The Barry Foundation does proactive grantmaking throughout the region with a strong interest in education. Much of my time is spent running our Philanthropy and Youth program, where we partner with 20 local high schools to conduct an extra-curricular grantmaking experience. I have the great privilege of instilling a philanthropic spirit in almost 500 young leaders!
This year is a big transition year for me–toward the end of August I will be moving to Grand Forks, North Dakota to follow a lifelong dream of being a financial planner. I am currently studying for my investment and insurance licenses, and look forward to an exciting career with Thrivent Financial as a Financial Representative. I’m also getting married in November!
Running for Miss Hutchinson taught me to push myself outside of my comfort zone! I have continued to find that my greatest accomplishments, and the amazing accomplishments of others, tend to happen when pursuing opportunities that force you to grow and develop new skills.
Donna is a Personal Banking Officer and supports customers at both locations in Hutchinson (Main and South Office). She enjoys working with people and helping them meet their financial goals. “I enjoy working for Citizens Bank & Trust and truly like working with customers and serving generations over the years. I appreciate the opportunities the Bank has given me to be of service to customers.”
Donna and her husband, Tom, have three adult sons and two grandsons, which have been a wonderful gift. Besides spending time with her sons and their families, she also enjoys biking, hiking and boating, along with riding motorcycle with friends.
These days, it makes sense to watch your account like a hawk to make sure that fradulent activity isn’t exposing your account to unauthorized purchases. At Citizens Bank & Trust, we have assembled several tools that empower you to watch your account:

Mobile Banking, Online Banking & E-statements
If you want 24-hour access to your account information, sign up for these three great services. You can view current activity and be able to react quickly if there is unusual activity on your account.
Monitor Your Credit Report
Each year, you have the opportunity to get a free credit report from the three main reporting bureaus: TransUnion, Equifax and Experian. The best website to get your credit report for free is Annualcreditreport.com.
We’d like to introduce you to our new staff member, Dianne Pasco. She and her husband, Jeff, have been in Hutchinson for 29 years. Jeff works at HTI and they have children, Seth, Kendra and Sam. In her free time, Dianne enjoys watching Hutch Tiger sports and walking.
We’d like to introduce you to one of our new staff members. Her name is Robyn Lawson and she just moved to Hutchinson in September from Cortland, Nebraska. She worked at First State Bank Nebraska as a Customer Service Representative for 5 years. She and her husband, Matthew, have been married for 19 years and have one daughter, Kylie, a sophmore at Dassel-Cokato High School.
I first turned to Citizens Bank 5 years ago when I decided to start my own small business. I had attempted to work with a larger, well-known national bank, as well as a large, well-known regional bank, but was told by both that my new business was just too small to work with. At that point, a friend of mine told me that I had to get in touch with Citizens Bank, and I am so glad that I did.
Simply put their team made my life easy. Their staff is professional, knowledgeable, and truly cares about my business. The service they provide is outstanding and personalized – something I feel you will be hard pressed to find elsewhere. I was so impressed with their commercial team, I made the decision to move over all of my personal accounts as well. I simply cannot say enough good things about Citizens!
What I love most about Citizens:
– The staff – friendly, caring, smart doesn’t even begin to cover it all – you can tell they really enjoy what they do
– A community minded, local bank – but with the professionalism and breadth of services and products you find at large national and regional banks
– Their commitment to helping local businesses thrive (from small to big, and everything in between!)
– Their commitment and dedication to our community
