Karen Stowell is receiving a service award for 25 years with Citizens Bank & Trust. She started working at Citizens Bank in 1973, under the Office Education Program through her school. In June of 1974, she started working full time at the Bank as a bookkeeper and teller. In 1979, she left the Bank to move to Beaufort, SC with her husband who was in the Marine Corp. In 1987, she was hired back at Citizens Bank and worked as a teller and later became the Safe Deposit Box Attendant.
If you have ever wondered who’s behind the phone when you call the Bank, Karen is one of the employees to answer the phone. She is also the one of the first ones to greet customers when they come in to the Bank.
Karen is married to Gordy Stowell. She has two sons, Jered and Brian (married to Gina). She has one granddaughter Kayla. Karen enjoys spending time with her family and dog Rocky.
Congratulations to Jane Powell! She is celebrating her 15 year anniversary with Citizens Insurance Agency.
Having grown up in Hutchinson, Jane is a hometown girl. She has actually worked for Citizens Insurance Agency for over 23 years, but left after the first 8 to pursue a job designing in the home decor industry for 5 years. This put her education in graphic design to good use!
Jane is married to Craig Powell (owns NAPA Auto Parts) and they have 2 sons Jake, married to Brooke, and Tyler. She is also a grandmother to Harper (2) and Hawkins (1 week!), and enjoys every minute spent with them.
For 8 years, she was the McLeod County Chair of the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days and found it to be a very rewarding experience. Jane’s current passion is her new business, Prairie Haven (www.prairiehavendesign.com), which is an occasional sale open for 3 days every 2 months. The need to design and work with color has always been woven into her life, whether through gardening or more recently decorating her grandchildren’s bedrooms.
“I enjoy working at the insurance agency, because our staff is small enough that we are able to build relationships with our customers. We work in a pretty comfortable atmosphere and hopefully that translates to our customers and they feel relaxed, since insurance is not the most fun product to shop for!” – Jane Powell

Congratulations to Lori Swenson who is celebrating her 15 year anniversary with Citizens Bank!

Spending time at the family cabin on Woman Lake near Hackensack (her hometown) and reading a good book are a couple of the things Lori enjoys in her leisure time.
