As CEO of Worthington National Bank, we are proud of our experienced, customer-focused team. We operate under the strong belief that if we treat our employees right, they'll treat our customers right. As a result, I am pleased to announce that Worthington produced 303 PPP loans for a total of $36,894,000, with an average loan size of $121,761.  We were able to get 100% of our eligible customers into the end zone on this program.  And, we made some new customers.

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, we kept our doors open so you could keep your doors open.  We would love to expand our family during this downtown.  If you are pleased by our results, we would love to ask that you refer another business or friend to us.

However, the punchbowl is about to be pulled away.  We are approaching the time when repayment of the PPP loans will occur.  As we receive guidelines on this process, we will share them with you and our Great Southwest business community.  The process looks fairly complicated, almost requiring the need of a tax attorney or CPA, so let us help guide you.

I’ve been told that Texas has four seasons:  Drought, Flood, Blizzard and Twister.  To that list of infections you can add two more --- The Covid-19 pandemic and a catastrophic collapse in global oil prices, creating double trouble for the Lone Star State.

No one has a crystal ball that can predict when and how the economic fallout from the coronavirus will end.

For better or for better (yes, better), we are in this together!  Let us hear from you.
