Bell completes graduate banking school.

 Casey Bell, Senior Vice President of BancFirst, recently graduated from the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado (GSBC), a 25-month banking school which provides senior management and leadership education for community-banking professionals.


Bell was among 160 graduates of the 64th annual school session, hosted July 13-25 on the campus of the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colo.


GSBC students as graduates often continue to become leaders in their respective organizations. A degree in banking is widely recognized by the banking industry at large, and is a marker of advanced education which hundreds of bank-industry professionals from around the country accomplish each year.


“We are proud of the work that Casey has done in earning his banking degree,” said BancFirst Shawnee president Marion McMillan, “This accomplishment is a natural result of his commitment to offering the highest quality service possible.”


Graduates receive a diploma upon successfully completing six weeks of classroom training which focuses on the areas of general management, lending, leadership and human-resource management and financial management in banks.


Requirements for graduation also include comprehensive examinations, intersession research projects and participation in a bank-management simulation course designed to provide students with experience managing a bank.
