Bank Backs Broncos!-and March for Babies, too!



On Fridays during the football season, it is a Bank of Zachary tradition to wear school colors.  Employees may also contribute to the March of Dimes “March for Babies” for the choice of wearing jeans on football Fridays.


This year, the Bank of Zachary has partnered with the Zachary High athletic department to purchase official “Century Club” shirts for all employees who contribute a minimum of $12.50 to March for Babies.


We consider this a Four Win proposition:


  1. Our employees receive a very nice shirt in ZHS colors at 1/2 the normal cost.
  2. Every Friday our staff shows off its ZHS pride in style.
  3. Zachary High sells an additional 30+ shirts at full cost.
  4. March for Babies gets 100% of the money collected from our staff.


The Bank of Zachary wishes the Zachary High Broncos the best in 2011.

Kathy Parker named “Star Performer” by Independent Banker magazine


This month’s issue of Independent Banker features Bank of Zachary’s Kathy Parker, along with four other “service-minded lenders sparkling with smarts and savvy”. The magazine cover describes these “Star Performers” as “excellent lenders making a difference in big cities and small towns across the nation”.

Kathy is quoted in the article: “Community banking is more than looking at credit scores and rate spread. It is doing what is best for the customer, for the bank and for the community.” This perfectly sums up The Bank of Zachary Way of doing business, which always seeks to enhance our key partners – our customers, our community, our shareholders and our staff.

Congratulations to Kathy for a job well-done, and for this very deserved recognition. The entire article can be viewed here.



As our country prepared to celebrate its 128th year of independence, a new business prepared to open its doors for the first time. On July 2, 1904 the Bank of Zachary began accepting deposits near the intersection of Main Street and the Yazoo & Mississippi Valley Railroad.

It was the railroad that brought the town of Zachary into existence, just a few years earlier, in 1889. Darel Zachary sold some of his property for the Y&MV depot, which was referred to as the Zachary Station.

One hundred seven years after its founding, the Bank of Zachary remains on Main Street, albeit in our third location. We still do the business the old-fashioned way, yet at the same time deploying a vast array of technological advances not even dreamed of in 1904.
