State Farm Insurance Agency to celebrate 100th anniversary on June 7th

The date of June 7th will mark the 100th year that State Farm Insurance has been in business. Anniversaries like this don’t happen every year and they certainly don’t happen for every company. Recognizing the impressive feat, the Jackson Parish Police Jury has proclaimed that Tuesday as State Farm Day.

The Shawn Murphy State Farm Agency of Jonesboro is making the most out of this milestone by sharing their gratitude with those who have helped their business succeed through an Open House at the office located on 826 Pershing Hwy from 11:00am – 1:00pm. There will be BBQ, popcorn, snow cones, freebies, good music and all kinds of fun!

You will not want to miss this event! It’s the perfect time to reflect on the years of service Shawn and his staff has provided to the Jackson Parish area. They will also be celebrating local employees, agents and agent team members from the past and other parts of the nation who made it their business to be good neighbors.

State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company was founded in 1922 by retired farmer G. J. Mecherle. His goal? To do the right thing for rural auto insurance customers. What started as an idea built on the principles of honesty and integrity, soon became reality. Through the years, State Farm has made connections and built relationships because they care, and because they are the ones you call when life gets hard. They help restore lives, rebuild neighborhoods and renew hope. Their history of investing in the communities where they live and work isn’t an accident…. it’s part of who they are… because that’s what being a good neighbor is all about.

“Like a Good Neighbor” goes far beyond the jingle Barry Manilow penned in 1971. It’s at the core of how State Farm operates. They work hard to protect what matters to you: your family, your home, your belongings and your community. It means they are in the community with you, investing in community organizations, providing education and support and volunteering alongside good neighbors like you.

Whatever the future brings, you can rest assured that here locally, Shawn Murphy and his team members Debra Fordham, Cheri Jo Harveston, Latonya Moss, and Debbie Hinman will be there with you, providing options and evolving to meet your needs. There is no better way to protect yourself than to be with a company that is 100 years old and has a staff that has a combined over 100 years of experience.
