president of the bank from 1887 to 1895.from 1895 to 1915 W.J. Hawkins, Mr. Biggs' son in law was the chief executive. At this time they had two people run the bank; the CEO was the cashier, took care of deposits and also made loans out. The other employee was Oley Hawkins, W.J.'s son. He became the cashier after his father in law died in 1915. After W.J. died the bank needed another employee and Lucille Warren was their man.

The Curryville Bank was a solid business, it had a good management system and it proved it by surviving the great depression in the 1930's under the leadership of Oley. After Oley died in 1937 G.B. Weber became the cashier until Kennedy Banks took over in 1943. Up until 1945 the bank made it residence in Curryville until in that year John McLlroy and Edward Long moved it to Bowling Green. In that same year the bank officially changed directors and names to the Community State Bank of Bowling Green

In 1957 the bank once again changed CEO's, this time it was Carl Murray. Tapley McCune succeeded Mr.
