In February 2012, John L. Ison of Ison Insurance Agency Inc., in West Liberty, KY was selected to receive an Eastern Kentucky University Risk Management & Insurance Program Outstanding Alumni Award.
John was honored at an Awards Dinner in April 2012. Each year, the EKU Risk Management & Insurance program selects a few outstanding alumni from this program and a few from the industry for their achievements over their lifetime. This program was created to recognize outstanding EKU alumni.
John was introduced by Ed Duett, President of the EKU Risk Management & Insurance Program by reading John’s biography. John was then presented with a plaque that reads “Risk Management & Insurance Outstanding Alumni Award presented to John L. Ison 2012”. John then gave a speech in which he remarked on his time in the EKU Risk Management & Insurance program and thanked his wife Jenni who accompanied him to this awards dinner. Congratulations John!
