graduated second in her high school class – while leading several
extra-curricular activities – and earned a scholarship to the University

position as a Management Associate for Regions. Seventeen years later,
Woods is now a Treasury Management Relationship Manager, one of the

organization and a staple in the community, providing job services,
medical and dental screenings, legal referrals, financial assistance and
other services. I’m so proud to see Prodisee grow.”
