Alumna Norma Linda Villarreal (BBA, Accounting, '85), now a district manager at Farmers Insurance, joined other representatives of Farmers Insurance who were on the campus of The University of Texas-Pan American recently to present a $2,000 sponsorship gift for the Financial Services, Insurance and Real Estate (FIRE) Symposium held at the University.

At the FIRE Symposium, Farmers Insurance agents conducted a career information session for students where they discussed the career opportunities in the insurance industry. A Farmers Insurance representative also spoke on setting up retirement plans for small business owners who also attended the event.
