St. Louis native Terrence Rogers is in the business of helping others realize their dreams of home ownership. As president of community lending for Carrollton Bank, Terrence has provided more than $1.2 million in down payment assistance funding during the past three years to low-income families seeking to purchase homes in the St. Louis area. Since first joining Carrollton Bank in 2012, Terrence has helped build a community-lending partnership program that is recognized as a model for banks across the country, helping more than 1,100 families with their home loans.

“My work feels more like a calling,” Terrence said. “I’m a lifelong learner who is eager to share knowledge with others to help them achieve their long-term goals.”

Terrence says his career was influenced by his childhood experience as a North St. Louis kid who attended the Ladue School District in middle school as part of a school desegregation program. After high school, Terrence attended Southeast Missouri State for two years, then transferred to the University of Missouri–St. Louis, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1996.
