Whereas, it is altogether fitting and proper that the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives should pause in their deliberations to express their gratitude to Teresa W. Knight for her significant contributions to banking in the Palmetto State; and
Whereas, reared in Mauldin, Teresa Knight is the daughter of Doug and Faye Wamack. She graduated from Anderson College in 1975 with an associate's degree in liberal arts and sciences, general studies and humanities, and she earned a bachelor's degree in psychology in 1977 from Clemson University; and
Whereas, in 1981, she joined the Palmetto Bank as a teller in the Greenville office, and in 1999, she became the first female elected to serve as executive vice president in bank administration, human resources, and marketing; and
Whereas, she became vice president, personnel officer, in 1987, and second vice president, personnel officer, in 1993; and
Whereas, from 1996 to 1999, she served on the South Carolina Bankers Association (SCBA) Bankers School Board and again from 2001 to 2004, serving as its chairman from 1997 to 1998 and from 2010 to 2011. She also served on the SCBA board of directors and was the first female to be elected as its president; and
Whereas, she served as the chairman of SCBA Trust from 2007 to 2009, and she continues to serve as a trustee; and
Whereas, she was the first female elected to serve on the Poinsett Club board of directors, and she and her beloved husband, Randy Knight, attend First Baptist Church in Fountain Inn; and
Whereas, not only is she an avid sea shell collector, but she is also an expert trap and sporting clays shooter, captured the South Carolina/North Carolina/Georgia Trap and Sporting Clays Ladies Championship title, and serves as the vice president of the South Carolina Trap Association; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the years of dedication that Teresa Knight has devoted to the Palmetto Bank and wish her many years of enjoyment as she officially begins her well-earned retirement on June 28, 2013. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor Teresa W. Knight, Executive Vice President of the Palmetto Bank, upon the occasion of her retirement after thirty-two years of outstanding service, and wish her continued success and happiness in all her future endeavors.
