A local insurance agency has, for the second time, earned the highest award from insurance carrier MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”).

Cherry Insurance, Inc., of Montezuma has been designated a Premier Agency for its commitment to MAX’s fair, faithful and socially responsible values and business practices.

“MAX was built on faith, strong values and service to others,” said David Wine, President and CEO of MAX.  “Cherry Insurance is a great example of the kind of trusted, community minded agency we want to associate with.  We’re proud to call them a partner.”

Cheri Martin heads the agency.  “We believe in treating the customer the way we would want to be treated and if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.  We love to serve our customers’ needs and represent MAX.”

When not running the insurance agency, Martin stays involved in the community.  She has worked with MAX to provide community grants for food baskets through Montezuma United Methodist Women, and other projects.
