CHARLESTON, W.Va., April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- City National Bank, headquartered in Charleston, announced today that Regional Retail Manager Lori Cooksey is one of the bank's City Cares community service award winners for 2011.
Cooksey was nominated by her peers for her involvement in several organizations, most notably the Ashland Rotary and the Community Kitchen.
