Thank you for presenting and recognizing Farmers Alliance with the Business of The Quarter Award.  FAMI’s relationship with Central College goes back several years.  It has been our pleasure as a local company to partner with Central College in providing Internship opportunities to helping support a Risk Management Program.  This partnership has allowed us to meet, work with, and ultimately employee several high-quality individuals to join our company.  We look forward to watching Central College’s continued success in educating and investing in people’s lives.
