COLUMBIA, S.C. – Carolyn E. Laffitte, senior vice president with the South Carolina Bankers Association, has taken over as administrator of the South Carolina Banking School.
Laffitte, who has been involved with the operation of the school for more than a decade, replaces Teresa D. Taylor, who recently left the Bankers Association to head the South Carolina Bankers Employee Benefit Trust.
“Carolyn has been active in a number of different aspects of SCBA operations over the years and having her take over the Bankers School is a natural step,” said SCBA President Fred Green. “I’m confident she will not only continue the strong record the Bankers School has enjoyed in recent years but build on it.”
Laffitte, a graduate of Wofford College, joined the SCBA in 2004. Her other duties at the SCBA include being in charge of SCBA Services Inc. and the Young Bankers Division.
The South Carolina Bankers School was begun more than 60 years ago and remains one of the nation’s premier banking institutions. Since its inception, more than 2,800 students have graduated from the school, including 42 this past July.
The upcoming session of the school will be held July 10-15, 2016, at Lander University in Greenwood.
The South Carolina Bankers Association is the trade and professional association representing more than 80 financial institutions across the state. The SCBA is organized to effectively represent the common interest and welfare of South Carolina’s banking industry and to promote the professional development of its members and individual practitioners. The SCBA’s mission is to provide legislative, regulatory, educational and product leadership on behalf of its members.
