Scruggs receives Lifetime award from Country Insurance


PRINCETON — Country Financial has named Jim Scruggs of Princeton as the first-ever financial representative to earn the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Previously the award was only earned by the company’s agency managers.

“It is truly an honor to receive this high recognition from such a large, well-respected organization and I have so many to thank for making this achievement possible,” Scruggs said. “I share this award with those from our corporate office in Bloomington, Julie, Kathy, Brenda and Nicole right here in my Princeton office, my clients, my friends, my family and my Heavenly Father.”

Scruggs has been serving clients as a Country Financial representative for 42 years. He serves clients in Bureau County. His office is at 204 N. Main St, Princeton.

Established in 1990, the COUNTRY Financial Hall of Fame honors financial representatives who have qualified for 20 or more All American Awards and agency managers with 10 years of qualification as a manager and 20 total qualifications. Scruggs had earned this award twice, making him eligible for the company’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

There are 58 active financial representatives and agency managers in the Country Financial Hall of Fame.
