Two App Students Selected for Prestigious NCAMIC Scholarship

Appalachian State students secured two of the NCAMIC's three scholarships this year, a scholarship which supports accomplished upperclassmen students pursing a career in the insurance industry.

Hannah Bagley, a current senior double majoring in Risk Management and Insurance and Finance, and Rick Orlicki, a Management and Risk Management double major with minors in Employee Benefits and Human Resources, were able to accept their respective scholarships at the NCAMIC's Annual Conference held at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro November 2nd through 4th. The Brantley Center was proud to sponsor these outstanding students' travel to the Triad where they had the opportunity to sit in on the conference's speakers and discussions and network with area professionals.

The two recipients thank the NCAMIC whole-heartedly for the financial support provided to them as they work to complete their senior years, as well as the opportunity to attend their Annual Conference. When reflecting on the experience, Rick Orlicki said, "It was such an honor to be a scholarship recipient and be given the incredible financial opportunity to focus more on my studies. At the NCAMIC conference, it was an exciting endeavor to network with professionals who are just as passionate about insurance as me!"
