Mary Lewison of First American Insurance Services Inc. in Brownsdale participated in Grinnell Mutual Reinsurance Company’s inaugural Farm Academy Feb. 24-28 in Grinnell, Iowa.



Lewison joined 22 agents from the Midwest to learn more about farm insurance coverages, services and Grinnell Mutual’s operations. Academy participants also toured a local grain farm and implement dealership to reinforce concepts learned in the classroom.

“The Farm Academy was designed to offer comprehensive training to agents committed to serving farm customers. It covered all aspects of writing farm insurance,” said Kurt Eaves, a vice president with Grinnell Mutual, in a press release. “We had a great group of agents attend this program and we hope this training session provided them with new knowledge and tools to serve farm accounts.”
