RHSB offers a college intern program to attract and develop top talent for the commercial insurance brokerage business. This year Dylan Sellers who is attending Texas Christian University interned with us for the summer.
Dylan was among 75 college students that received $5,000 scholarships from The Council Foundation administered by The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers. The Foundation’s Scholarship Program works directly with the internship programs of member firms of The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers. The program is designed to expose college students from across the country to, and potentially keep them in, the commercial insurance brokerage sector after graduation. Of the 50 students who received scholarships in the program’s pilot year last summer, 68 percent were hired or repeated an internship with a Council member firm.
“It is very gratifying to partner with our member firms in this way and to see the scholarship program’s early signals of success,” said Ken A. Crerar, President/CEO of The Council. “The program is, without a doubt, drawing more talented young folks to the entrepreneurial spirit of the brokerage business.”
