The Arkansas Insurance Hall of Fame was created in 2015 to recognize leaders of the insurance industry in Arkansas. Our goals are to remind the public of the important role the insurance industry plays in securing the well-being of both individuals and businesses, to inspire the next generation of leadership to reach these high levels of accomplishment, and to encourage young Arkansans to consider careers in the insurance industry.
