IIABC’s InVEST Program awarded $500 College Scholarships to Deerfield Beach High School Graduates Johanna Wilson and Alante Ford. Forty students completed the high school course which covered twenty classroom hours including field trips to an insurance agency and an insurance company. The 2012 Broward County InVEST Program was sponsored by Florida Peninsula Insurance Company, People’s Trust Insurance Company, Federated National Insurance Company and MacNeill Group, Inc.
The InVEST Program was founded in 1970 by the Independent Insurance Agents of Los Angeles for the purpose of educating students in insurance to become better insurance consumers. Over the years, it has expanded to also teach insurance agency and company operations and encourage students to pursue careers in the industry. InVEST is now active in over 200 high schools and community colleges across the country.
