The Citizens State Bank announced the addition of Jennifer Driskill to their mortgage lending team.

According to Bill Hake, the Citizens State Bank Newton market president, "Jennifer will be responsible for residential loan origination in Newton and the surrounding south-central Kansas region."

Driskill has been with the Citizens State Bank-Newton traditional branch for eight years. Prior to serving as a mortgage loan officer, she was a customer service representative and teller supervisor. She has more than 17 years banking experience in the Newton area.

Driskill will be involved in the many loan programs currently offered by the Citizens State Bank, including conventional, FHA, rural development and the Kansas Housing Resource Corporation First Time Homebuyer Grant program.

The Citizens State Bank recently acquired Home State Bank in McPherson, which has three locations in that city. The CSB is now located in six Kansas communities: Moundridge, Hesston, Goessel, Canton, Newton and McPherson.

Jennifer Driskill can be reached at the Newton traditional branch, 2315 S. Kansas, or by phone at 283-7478, or by email at
