Bruce Whitehurst, VBA President and CEO commented about this year’s graduating class, “We are proud of the sixty-two bankers who graduated this year. These students have developed a range of skills that will both 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.”

Joseph F. Collum, chairman of the Virginia Bankers School of Bank Management Board of Trustees and executive vice president, director of branch and business banking at Burke & Herbert Bank said, “The work the Board of Trustees performs is especially rewarding each August when graduation takes place. I speak for the Board of Trustees when I say that it is an honor to partner with the VBA staff and the officers of each class during the year as we work to ensure an exceptional educational experience for our student bankers. It will be exciting to see the career progress and path of each of our graduating bank students in the future.”

Class President, Jules Blaise T. Tamo, United Bank, said of his experience, “The mission of Bank School is to provide us with a thoughtful and creative approach that will help bankers succeed in our efforts to build a great community. It’s been a privilege to represent this school and class as its president. I look forward to watching everyone’s growth within their respected banks and in the great Commonwealth of Virginia.”
