The South Carolina Bankers School announced that Annette L. Scott, EVP and CFO of Greenwood-headquartered Countybank, will serve a one-year term as program chair.

The South Carolina Bankers School is the premier educational and professional development program sponsored by the South Carolina Bankers Association.

Scott will chair the 59th annual session for the school, which will be held for the eleventh year at Lander University.

The school is designed for junior- and mid-level officers or administrators. In addition to the classroom component, the three-year program includes home study problems, completion of a bank simulation program, exams and more.

“Our Bankers School has over 3,000 alumni that have benefited from an outstanding curriculum,” Fred Green, SCBA president and CEO, said in a news release. “With the rapid changes in our industry, having leaders like Annette involved in all aspects of the school keeps the school up-to-date and relevant to today’s bankers.”

The SCBA is the trade and professional association representing more than 70 financial institutions across the state. The association’s mission is to provide legislative, regulatory, and educational leadership on behalf of its members.
