"The North Carolina Association of Mutual Insurance Companies is once again proud to partner with Appalachian State's Risk Management and Insurance program," said Williams of NCAMIC. Since the beginning of our involvement with AppState, we continue to be impressed by the qualities of the scholarship applicants which is a testament to the instruction they receive while at AppState. We look forward to following the exciting careers of not only our NCAMIC scholarship recipients, but all of the well-prepared A ppState students coming into the insurance and risk management industry."
