Why I love working at Leighton State Bank

LSB is focused on helping our customers grow financially strong but is also committed to our employees growing their professional strengths. It's great to be a valued part of that equation.

Favorite way LSB gives back

I appreciate how LSB supports the community organizations valued by its employees. Employees contribute to the decisions on who we support and help plan the ways we support our communities. Not only do they support organizations directly, LSB also supports me when I want to take time off to volunteer for the things that are important to me.


I enjoy traveling to new places. All destinations Disney are particularly special to us.
