Rollins graduates from Pacific Coast Banking School

Heppner, OR – Ed Rollins, Senior Vice-President and Credit Administrator for Bank of Eastern Oregon, recently graduated from Pacific Coast Banking School. PCBS is touted as the premier graduate level banking school in the country. For the past three summers, Ed has attended the two-week program at the University of Washington in Seattle. The curriculum included courses in lending, law, accounting, leadership, and numerous inter-year problems, as well as a thesis.

Rollins joined the bank in 2004 as a loan officer in Ione and Arlington. Ed and his wife, Tricia, have two children and live in Ione.

“We are very proud of Ed’s accomplishment. He continues to exhibit fabulous leadership qualities and a desire to master additional aspects of banking. PCBS has a very intense curriculum. The time commitment associated with the classes, as well as the interim work, make for a strenuous schedule, especially when added to the normal requirements associated with his job, community activities, and family. Ed’s dedication and commitment is another example of what sets us apart from our competition,” said Jeff Bailey, President and CEO of the bank.

“I appreciate the opportunity to further my banking knowledge. The interaction with other bankers was a valuable experience,” said Rollins.
