“I’m on a first-name basis with everybody. When I walk in the door, they know me, and they take care of my needs. From my savings accounts to my business operating loans, whatever I need, they are there to help.”
How I chose Bell:
When Bell opened in Wahpeton and Linda Shannon (now retired) and Darci Eggen (commercial lender) came to work at Bell, I followed them. I felt comfortable banking with them.
How long I’ve been a customer:
My favorite banker:
Darci and Linda – they always help me out. They’re very easy to work with, open-minded, honest, and whenever I asked a question, they always answer it to the best of their knowledge. They make things simple. All I have to do is ask and it is taken care of.

What it means to bank at a locally owned, community bank:
I’ve stuck with Bell because of the way the company gives back to the community and helps people out through its Pay It Forward program. That is a very important thing. The people who have benefited are very thankful that opportunity exists. It’s good Bell is able to do that.
Country music singer and sports radio host Chris Hawkey started banking with Bell because of our Pay It Forward program. That connection now helps him live out a childhood dream.
