Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey awarded the Order of the Guardian to Brenda Foss on June 30, 2017, for serving 51 years in the insurance industry in North Carolina.
“Brenda Foss has been an exemplary representative for the insurance industry for over half a century and I am so pleased to present her with the first Order of the Guardian,” said Causey. “Choosing Brenda to receive this award was easy because of her focus, attention and care for every single customer.”
