Bank manager grateful for SWU faculty’s encouragement, support
Robin Tucker is grateful for the doors her Southern Wesleyan degree opened to her, enabling her to advance professionally.
When Robin Tucker enrolled at Southern Wesleyan University’s Greenville education center as a new mom with a fulltime job, she found a place that would not only stretch her personally, but also a place with faculty who offered her encouragement and support all along her educational journey.
Now a branch manager/assistant vice president at Park Sterling Bank, Tucker is grateful for the doors her Southern Wesleyan degree opened to her, enabling her to advance professionally.
“I work in the banking industry and am very passionate about helping individuals and businesses achieve and exceed their financial goals,” Tucker said. “I hope that I am able to make a positive impact in my community through my work while also setting a positive example of hard work and perseverance for my children.”
Tucker stresses to current students seeking a job or internship the importance of doing a personal inventory of values and goals and to assess whether or not any opportunity supports them. Tucker adds that once a student finds the right opportunity, they should “work hard, be curious, learn from mistakes and never quit learning and growing.”
“My experience and achievements at SWU helped build my confidence to face and overcome professional and personal obstacles and has truly enriched my life,” Tucker said. Tucker is a 1995 management and human resources graduate.
