Congratulations to our students at Deerfield Beach High School for participating in the 4th annual InVEST Independent Insurance Agent Initiative. Our Academy of Finance and Marketing students at DBHS spent seven weeks learning about the many college and career options of independent insurance agents.
Students learned about every form of insurance from actual in-field agents, including Home, Life, Health, Auto and Commercial insurance. Also, students learned how to operate an independent agency, including office operations and marketing an agency.
This initiative culminated with a field trip sponsored by InVEST, where students visited three of the partner insurance agencies on March 18th. Students visited JT Restoration in Pompano Beach, Team Focus Insurance Group in Sunrise and Progressive Insurance in Ft. Lauderdale. Students witnessed first-hand the many prosperous career options available in this growing billion dollar industry.
Finally, InVEST will be providing a $500 scholarship to one student in the program in May as part of the partnership agreement with Deerfield Beach High School.
