Andrew H. Ekern Award

The Andrew H. Ekern Award was established in 1965 when a local independent insurance agent, Andrew H. Ekern, became concerned about citizen apathy and its direct influence on the rapid increase in crime in this nation. The Stamp Out Crime crusade resulting from his efforts has spread to many California communities, to neighboring states, and to cities across the United States. This award is given as merited by your Association to an outstanding insurance agent who has contributed his time and talent to the community and industry.
