Sorenson leaves North Country

By ALLAN TINKER
With an eye to some leisure time at his lake home at Metigoshe, Robert Sorenson left his job at North Country Bank in McClusky on Feb. 5. The bank held a going away party for him on Feb. 3 in great style, with a choice of two cakes, both decorated by local cake artist, Margie Rau.
Sorenson stated that Robert Larson, currently serving the Underwood branch of the banking group, will step in and take over as president of the McClusky office. The two banks, and the Goodrich bank, are owned by Davis Bancshares, Inc.
Sorenson has been in McClusky since May 16 of 2001, moving from Stanley and Scandia American Bank and Trust and 22 years of experience at that institution. While there, he progressed from assistant vice-president to vice-president. He had previously worked at First National Bank in Bowman; there he had also served as assistant vice-president.
After serving as a Commissioned Officer in the Marine Corps, First Lieutenant Sorenson left the military in 1975 after four years of duty at Camp Pendleton, CA as an artillery officer. He then went to work for the Federal Land Bank from 1975-1976.
Thus far in his years of banking, Sorenson has served as president of Independent Banks of North Dakota (1997-1998) and is now on a North Dakota Director on the board of Independent Community Banks of America, a position he has held for four and one-half years.
