First State Bank awarded five-star rating

First State Bank, Mendota, has received its five-star superior rating from BauerFinancial of Coral Gables, Fla. This rating, based on financial data as reported to federal regulators, indicates that First State Bank is one of the strongest financial institutions in the nation; a dependable and financially sound bank.

“While many financial institutions may look similar, once you scratch the surface you can find deep variations in the ways they operate. First State Bank is focused on its community and the success of its neighbors,” Karen L. Dorway, president of the rating firm, said.

“Operating in this manner has allowed First State Bank to thrive where others have faltered,” Dorway said.
