Mrs. Juanita Litzelfelner

Mrs. Juanita Litzelfelner (1920 – 2007) CEO of Citizens State Bank and community leader, Mrs. Litzelfelner was a role model and mentor for our young people over the years.  She had a radiant smile and a kind word every time you met her.  Her early childhood years at Bald Knob were spent attending school and growing up in a house across the street from the elementary school. She moved with her family and finished high school at Piggott, Arkansas. After graduating from the U of A she returned to Piggott and taught fourth grade before working in the banking business. She was one of the few women in bank management at the time.  Upon the death of her father, she returned to Bald Knob and served as Chairman of the Board of Citizens State Bank for 36 years and became involved in all aspects of the community.  An avid supporter of her alma mater, Bald Knob School, Mrs. Litz, as she was fondly called, was a Charter Member of the Bald Knob Public Education Foundation and a mentor to young people, always encouraging them to set high goals. .
