Bart Conner, Nadia Comaneci, Paul Ziert, and Ben Fox

“From the time our gymnastics program began in 1978, our focus has been to give the community a wonderful place for their children to develop physically, emotionally, and mentally and to allow them to be a part of a winning tradition. Our goal at Bart Conner Gymnastics Academy is to teach what it truly means to be a champion.

Republic Bank & Trust has been our champion. They have allowed us to grow and take on things that, on our own, would have been out of our reach. Many times people have great ideas but they need financing and guidance to achieve success. Whatever our need is, Republic makes us feel important. They have helped us develop and expand our business so that we are able to put our focus and energy on our passion for what we do.

It’s also wonderful for us that Republic is a community bank and that Norman is as important to them as it is to us. They play a major role in the amazing things that are here because they want our community to be special. We appreciate the uniqueness of having a bank that believes in what we’re doing for our community. They know the community, the value of local business, and how it all works together.

In gymnastics and in banking, the people you want to be around are the people that believe in you. Republic honors their community and their customers more than any banking group that we’ve seen. They are true Champions!”
