The graduation ceremony took place on May 5 at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education in Athens, Ga.

The school provides a well-balanced curriculum featuring UGA faculty members, veteran bankers, and other industry experts and specialists.
"We are very proud of Cole’s accomplishment," said Brad Barber, President and CEO of First National Bank.
