Participating in a session that was part-Bridging the Gap and  part-College Prep Institute, Horton spoke about his journey through the banking industry, gave an overview of corporate careers in business, and invited students to participate in a series of on-site tours to take place at Regions through the spring semester.  Over the course of three sessions, students will get to visit both Regions Center and Regions Field to learn about the wealth of career possibilities in the industry, and specifically, the ones that support Regions Financial.  In May, students will be invited to attend and view the New Venture Challenge, a business-plan contest sponsored by Regions in partnership with the Brock School of Business at Samford.IMG_0002
