This three-year program features fresh perspectives on credit union management strategies utilizing the hands-on experience of credit union leaders including the completion of strategic plan projects. The program, held at Texas Christian University (TCU), officially commenced its 41st graduating class with students representing credit unions across Texas, surrounding states and as far away as Brazil.
ITCU’s executive leadership was especially proud to see their Assistant Vice President of Regional Branch Operations for Texas, Millicent Mayaka, graduate with the school’s top honor, the Award of Excellence. Amongst the group of 45 students, SCMS faculty only selected seven Honor Graduates, in addition to the sole selection of Mayaka for their highest award.

Fellow 2013 SCMS graduate, James Simpson currently serves as InTouch’s Vice President of Wealth Management. Simpson came to InTouch Credit Union in 2008 and features 15 years of experience in his field. Both Simpson and Mayaka pursued this advanced educational opportunity while maintaining their full-time roles at the credit union.
