About Southern States Insurance Company
We are an independent insurance agency working to meet our communities’ insurance needs. We write business, home, car, and life insurance policies to help our clients succeed.
Southern States Insurance has offices spread across Georgia and into Florida to be able to provide the most personal and unique service to our clients. We believe in investing in the community and want to be a neighbor with our clients to understand their personal circumstances.
Our office in Ellijay recently had a unique opportunity that has become a tradition for our staff in the North Georgia branch.
A Story of Sacrifice To Help People Accomplish More
Our Ellijay office sacrificed in a unique way to help college-bound students succeed.
The Southern States Insurance Company staff decided to make a difference by granting scholarships to client’s graduating students. Our Georgia insurance company agreed to save each year by committing to clean our offices and save the money that would have been expensed by a professional cleaning service to donate to college-bound students.
Rooted in our company’s belief of “helping people succeed”, Southern States Insurance’s commitment to no longer pay for a professional cleaning service has helped send student’s to higher education now for 7 years. Every year providing a gift to hardworking deserving students. This year six high school graduating students received scholarship to put towards their college tuition.
The graduating High School seniors of Gilmer High School have worked hard over the past years and now dream of what they can be as they go off to their colleges and universities of choice.
The Gilmer Education Foundation
Our insurance agency contributes money to the Gilmer Education Foundation and allocates giving towards our client’s children who are bound for college.
The 2012 Gilmer Education Foundation awarded over $121,000 to graduating seniors from Gilmer High School on May 8th, 2012. The Gilmer Education Foundation has been administrating scholarships for Gilmer High School graduates for more than 20 years.
This year six clients children were rewarded with scholarships through Southern States Insurance’s sacrificial giving. Our Ellijay office branch manager Pam Fox is moved every year and commented on the night. “We were very proud as we presented four personal insurance client’s children and two commercial insurance clients’ children with financial aid to attend their colleges and universities of choice. We hugged all of their necks so tight!” said Fox.
The night is such a strong example of community. Our staff was thrilled to award students in an auditorium filled up to support the accomplished students.
Southern States Insurance believes in helping people succeed through trials and setbacks that occur. In the end it’s a night of “people helping people” and we strive to emulate the same mentality in our work as an insurance company. Our staff believes we truly represent an insurance agency which works to help our clients reach their goals.
Thank you to everyone who also gave to the Gilmer Education Foundation to make the night as powerful and memorable as it was. There are contributions from teachers, businesses, and so many that we couldn’t begin to acknowledge all of them. We are blessed to play a role and push even some to greater success!
