INDIANAPOLIS, IN (March 8, 2016) —Farmers Union Insurance Agency has been selected as the recipient of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Outstanding Service Award.

Nominated by the South Dakota High School Activities Association (SDHSAA) for significant contributions to the SDHSAA the past thirteen years, Farmers Union Insurance Agency was approved for the Outstanding Service Award by the NFHS Board of Directors at its recent meeting in Indianapolis.

Outstanding Service Awards are presented by the NFHS in two categories: 1) to individuals for longstanding service and significant contributions to the NFHS within a specific sport or activity, or 2) to individuals/organizations for services or contributions that have a significant impact on high school activity programs.

Farmers Union Insurance Agency, with headquarters in Huron, South Dakota, is a strong, South Dakota based insurance agency whose business principles and practices are as solid as the people who live here. Their presence isn't just a line item on a balance sheet. Decisions are made locally, with first-hand knowledge of the people and communities they serve.

Since becoming a corporate partner of the SDHSAA in 2003, Farmers Union Insurance Agency has contributed $340,000 dollars to the state’s governing body for high school sports and activities with another $422,500 dollars pledged through the 2022-2023 school year. As a result, the SDHSAA has been able to absorb some of the financial responsibilities of SDHSAA member schools. In addition, Farmers Union Insurance Agency has presented over $220,000 dollars in post secondary scholarships thorough the “Insuring a Brighter Tomorrow” scholarship program.

“Participating in high school activities teaches students much more than the rules of the game or the right technique. It's a chance to shape character and to encourage our youth to believe and achieve their possibilities in life. Through goal setting, hard work, teamwork and learning to persevere through life's challenges along the way, these students are given the tools that can help them to succeed. At Farmers Union Insurance Agency, we believe in possibilities and are proud to partner with students, parents, teachers, coaches and the SDHSAA to invest in a brighter tomorrow."

The inscription on the plaque reads: The National Federation of State High School Associations in Grateful Recognition of Services and Contributions in Support of the SDHSAA Presents this Award to FARMERS UNION INSURANCE AGENCY. Here to present the award is SDHSAA Executive Director Mr. Wayne Carney.
