Amy Coggins, a senior loan adjuster with SC State Credit Union, was named the Columbia Chapter’s CUaware Protégé on Tuesday, October 23, 2018. Coggins will go on to the CUaware Protégé Competition finals at the LAUNCH Conference Jan. 31 – Feb. 1, 2019 in Charlotte, NC.
Coggins and fellow candidate San Booker-Holder (Palmetto Citizens FCU) represented their respective credit unions at the Columbia Chapter event at Seawell's in downtown Columbia. Each contestant made a five-minute presentation in front of the chapter board and credit union professionals in attendance. The contestants were also scored on a one-page essay that they submitted as part of the application process.
Coggins joined SC State CU in 2017 and seeks to learn as much as she can about the credit union movement to advance her career in the industry. She is a graduate of the University of South Carolina with a bachelor or arts in history and minored in religious studies.
Coggins joins Upstate Chapter Protégé Meaghan King and Tarheel Chapter Protégé Barbara Mojica Arzate in the lineup of finalists moving forward in the competition, with others to be determined in the weeks ahead. Click here to see the upcoming events.
