    As a Kansas native, Dustin grew up knowing the importance of farms and ranches to our community. After earning his BS in Agri-Business from Kansas State University, he went straight to work at our branch here in Abilene.

    He’s proud of what he and his staff do to help our customers and our community. He believes they are successful year after year because they listen, not just during banking hours, but also when the conversations take place during the evening or on the weekend. This is probably the reason Dustin’s favorite season is harvest season. He loves seeing farmers realize the rewards of their long days.

    Dustin and his wife, Michelle, have six children.  They enjoy country living in rural Dickinson County.
