SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ This is not the best of times for the nation's banks, but a Kansas bank has something to be proud of.
The head of Salina's Sunflower Bank is being honored by a national publication. President and CEO Mollie Carter is ranked seventh by USBanker magazine as one of ``The 25 Most Powerful Women in Banking.''
Given the current financial crisis, many of the two dozen bankers on the list with Carter work for nationally known banks that are in dire straits.
Carter says Sunflower Bank has made a successful business of putting community first by running a fad-resistant, sustainable business.
Carter's family has owned Sunflower Bank for 116 years.
