“We appreciate the long partnership that the college has had with Citizen’s National Bank and the Willson family,” said TWC President Harley Knowles. “They have been faithful in their support of the college for many years.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Tennessee Wesleyan because it is good for our entire community,” said Paul Willson, CNB’s chairman/CEO. “We have many of Tennessee Wesleyan’s alumni, like Cary Davis, working with us at the bank and we see their leadership throughout this county and region.”
The donation from Citizens National Bank helped the college reach its George R. Johnson Family Foundation matching gift challenge.
“This gift has put us over the top of the $50,000 challenge gift,” said Randy Nelson, TWC’s chief advancement officer. “We are so grateful to Citizens Bank and the many other alumni, friends and community partners for their help in successfully reaching the challenge gift goal.”
