Bruce Whitehurst, VBA President and CEO commented about this year’s graduating class, “We are proud of the resilience the 60 bankers who graduated showed this year. These students have developed a range of skills that will enhance their current performance, as well as qualify them as potential candidates for advancement within their institutions. The connections they have made with other students will benefit them both personally and professionally for years to come.”
