Forget The Apprentice, the search is on for a young credit union professional protégé in the Palmetto State.
Four regional chapters of South Carolina credit unions have selected their respective candidates for the inaugural South Carolina Credit Union League Palmetto Protégé Competition.
The event was designed to recognize promising young professionals. The protégé selected will serve as statewide leader of the SCCUL Young Professional Initiative and a peer advocate for credit unions.
The four finalists include Patricia Bivens of CPM FCU, representing the Charleston Area Chapter; James Montgomery of SAFE FCU, representing the Columbia Chapter; Ernest Felkel of SPC CU, representing the Pee Dee Chapter; and Katie Matthews of Secured Advantage FCU, representing the Piedmont Chapter.
Finalists will vie for selection as the South Carolina Palmetto Protégé on Friday, April 20 at the league’s annual meeting in Myrtle Beach.
