Mark Schneider, CIC, CRM, of Brennan & Stuart Insurance, 222 Bucklin St., La Salle, was recently named Agent of the Year by the Prairie State Insurance Cooperative at its annual membership meeting in Springfield.
The Prairie State Insurance Cooperative is a risk-sharing cooperative that provides Illinois school districts with its property & casualty and workers compensation insurance programs. The program is one of the fastest-growing educational insurance cooperatives in the Midwest.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the PSIC membership and fellow agents,” Schneider said. “I truly believe this is the most comprehensive and cost effective program currently available for the public school systems in this part of Illinois.
“The coverage limits and terms provided go beyond what an individual school district can obtain on their own in today’s marketplace.”
Established to respond to the needs of school districts, the PSIC program writes property and liability insurance, workers compensation coverage, school board liability, student accident coverage, pollution coverage, and treasurers bonds.
Since 2006, ARM of Illinois has been offering the PSIC plan to Illinois public school districts.
Now at 134 members, the program has become a model for self-administration of insurance and risk management for public schools. The program is administered by Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.
Schneider serves La Salle, Bureau, Putnam, Grundy, Stark and Livingston counties for the program. He can be reached at (815) 410-2008 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
