IBC Bank Insurance Intern Program Lauds Graduates
(May22, 2023) LAREDO, Texas - IBC Insurance Agency recently honored nine students from area high schools who participated in the 2023 insurance intern program. The National Alliance created the training curriculum for the program allowing them to earn a designation as a Certified Insurance Service Representative prior to beginning the internship.
This innovative high school program launched at IBC Bank under the direction of Dale Randol, President and CEO of IBC Insurance Agency. "We are proud to be a part of such a groundbreaking program that provides so many opportunities to young people planning their future careers," said Randol. "IBC Insurance Agency and IBC Bank intend to continue fostering education and development with more training and career experiences such as this one," he added.
