“Being a Customer Service Representative at State Bank of Cross Plains has opened my eyes to all sorts of career possibilities and has shown me what it is like to work in a professional environment. It has also helped me determine my college path by showing me more about my interest areas. Not only that . . . everyone has to deal with finances at some time in their life and I have such a better understanding now!”
