Jackie Sherrill at MSU Insurance Day

Former Mississippi State head football coach and 2016 Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame inductee Jackie Sherrill was among speakers at the 29th annual Insurance Day recently held at the Mill at MSU Conference Center. Organized by the College of Business and its risk management and insurance academic program, the continuing education program again attracted hundreds of insurance and other professionals for sessions focused on current industry issues. Sherrill spoke to the importance of having good leadership and teamwork on an athletic team, explaining that both qualities are just as important to apply in one's insurance business. Much to the enjoyment of the audience, Sherrill shared stories about past MSU football players and games during his address, for which he received a standing ovation.
