“Being selected as the Poole student commencement speaker is a true honor,” said Prince. “I have the privilege of representing the class of 2022 to highlight the tremendous achievements and progress we have all accomplished on a very special day. Go Pack!”

Prince held various internship and assistant positions during his academic career including teaching assistant for MIE 305, Legal and Regulatory Environment; corporate banking summer analyst with Regions Bank in Charlotte, investment intern with the NC State Office of Investments; and a finance intern with Capital Investment Companies in Raleigh.

“I always loved going to the Poole Party,” said Prince when recalling a favorite Poole memory.  “It’s a great way to not only meet other Poole students, but also to find things that interest you, and as a student leader, to recruit the best and brightest for our groups!”

Following graduation, Prince will be headed to Charlotte returning to Regions Bank full-time as a corporate investment banking analyst in their diversified industries coverage group.
