RCB Bank Employees and Shepherd Oil Co. Donate to Blackwell Elementary

BLACKWELL, Okla. – RCB Bank employees and Shepherd Oil Co. recently teamed up to donate bottled water to Blackwell Elementary School.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, students are asked to bring a water bottle each day because the water fountains can only be used to refill bottles. Many times, students forget to bring a bottle, and the donation of 25 cases of water will help fill the gap.

When RCB Bank employees became aware of the issue, they believed it would be a good way of helping the children out.

Forbes 2020 best-in-state banks.

Forbes magazine named RCB Bank as the best bank in the state of Oklahoma in 2020. Nearly 25,000 consumers took a survey to discuss their current and former banking relationships. Based on consumer answers, RCB Bank ranked first in the state of Oklahoma based on its advantages in customer service, accessibility and financial advice. Banks were also ranked based on overall recommendations and satisfaction, trust, terms and conditions, branch services and digital services.

“We are thrilled to receive this prestigious award,” said RCB Bank President and CEO Roger Mosier. “Our employees are dedicated to their communities and building relationships with every person that walks through the door.”

RCB Bank began in Claremore, Oklahoma in 1936 after L.S. Robson was unable to secure a dependable loan with local banks. His son and current RCB Bank board member Frank Robson recalls why the motivation to start RCB Bank. “My dad started this bank because he knew if a community was ever going to grow, credit had to be available.”

It is this progressive spirit and commitment to local communities that motivates RCB Bank to offer small town service with the ability to handle big bank transactions. “Working with someone you know always makes the banking process easier,” said Claremore Market President Matt Mason. “We want what is best for the community because we live here too and know how important banks are to those communities.”

CLAREMORE, Okla. – On Tuesday, June 9, the USDA, RCB Bank and Claremore Public School employees teamed up to hand out 1200 boxes of food and 600 gallons of milk to people in the community.

“The collaborative effort by RCB Bank employees and the Claremore Public School staff was a great example of how we can serve our community,” said RCB Bank Market President Matt Mason. “It was certainly enjoyed by all who were there.”

As part of the Coronavirus Farm Assistance Program, the USDA is partnering with farmers, ranchers, specialty crop producers, food processors and distributors, and non-profit organizations to ensure that all Americans have access to the fresh and wholesome food they need during the COVID-19 National Emergency.

“This program will not only provide immediate relief for our farmers and ranchers, but will allow for the purchase and distribution of our agricultural abundance to help our fellow Americans in need,” said U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue.

The program will purchase $1.2 billion dollars in fruits, vegetables, dairy and meat products, and transport them to food banks, community and faith-based organizations, and other non-profits serving Americans in need from May 15 through June 30, 2020.

Tom Bayless Retires After 30 Years at RCB Bank

CLAREMORE, Okla. – Tom Bayless will retire after 50 years in banking and 30 years working for RCB Bank. He is currently the Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of RCB Bank.

“Tom kept RCB Bank on the cutting edge of technology for years,” said RCB Bank President and CEO Roger Mosier. “He anticipated the needs of our customers and worked tirelessly to make their experience better.”

Bayless spearheaded the effort to implement electronic and online banking platforms. He also helped RCB Bank become one of the first banks to implement remote deposit capture for businesses.

Loan officer Mandy Cannon remembers another side of her boss. “When I missed work for a month with a family illness, Tom checked on me and my family before anything else. It confirmed to me that he is a man of God who cares for others and that family is a priority.”

Tom understood RCB Bank’s connection to family and community from an early age. His grandfather was a cashier at Rogers County Bank when it first opened in January of 1936 and his father was best friends with Stan Robson, whose father founded Rogers County Bank.

“It is amazing how many connections people in Claremore have to RCB Bank,” said Bayless.

“I will miss all of the employees, the challenges of growing the bank, and most of all, Myrtle Prather’s cinnamon rolls.”
