Spotlight On Success: Kimberly Ferebee
Kimberly is working as a Member Service Specialist at TowneBank in Virginia since 2004. This is what she had to say about her experience taking courses from CFTEA:
“I started working in the banking industry in 2004. At the time, I knew nothing about banking. However, when I started, one of the required courses that each teller must take was CFTEA’s Principles of Banking and Law and Banking (now Legal Foundations in Banking).
After taking the Principles of Banking course, I had a better understanding of why I did what I did. These courses gave me an insight of the functioning and operating of the banking industry. There’s a wealth of knowledge in these courses.
Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to share with fellow employees the benefits of attending CFTEA and other courses that TowneBank offers. This was rewarding for me because I had the opportunity to share how important it is to learn all that you can. As Malcolm X said, “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” ”
