The slogan adopted by State Bank & Trust Company "relationship banking - with us it's personal" is one that is steeped in tradition, history, and community service. The culture surrounding our bank stems back to both the Valley Bank and State Bank & Trust Company preceding and following the mergers of the two in August, 2000. Prior to the merger, the Valley Bank (founded in 1898) provided the people of Rosedale, MS and surrounding counties a community bank that prided itself on personal relationships; likewise State Bank & Trust Company (founded in 1936) served the needs of Brookhaven and surrounding communities.
