Lance Swift, a loan officer at RCB Bank in Claremore, was named an “Honor’s Graduate” for his outstanding work on the Oklahoma Banker’s Association exam. He was also praised for his contributions to the 2019 Oklahoma Bankers Association Consumer Lending School.

“Lance’s interest in the school was evident from the first session,” said Janis Reeser, executive vice president of education at the OBA. “His thoughtful questions and comments added to class discussion. He also encouraged the other attendees and provided support when asked.”

Lance was chosen for the award by the OBA’s regents, staff, faculty and students. He will sit on the OBA advisory board and will speak with next year’s class on their final day.

Every year, the OBA conducts more than 70 educational programs and seminars, which reach more than 5,000 bankers across the state. They educate students on the overall consumer credit function and how lenders can meet the needs of their customers. They also offer specific training in loan pricing, loan application generation and credit analysis, compliance, risk management and direct and indirect lending, among other things.
