Virginia Farm Bureau Insurance has recognized Jim Jervey as the Ralph Stokes Career Achievement Award Honoree during its annual sales conference at Hilton’s The Main Hotel, in Norfolk.

The Ralph Stokes Award is the highest honor a Virginia Farm Bureau insurance agent can achieve. Named after Ralph Stokes, a former agent from Chilhowie, Virginia, the award recognizes significant contributions to company and community over a long and distinguished career. Stokes balanced excellent sales and member service with family and community service, becoming one of the best agents in the history of the company.

“Jim Jervey, Virginia Farm Bureau’s 2018 Ralph Stokes Award Honoree, represents these same ideals,” said Ray Leonard, vice president of sales. “Jim is a consummate professional, working long hours to ensure his members understand their insurance needs, coverages, and supporting his family and community. Jim has remained dedicated to the members of Southampton County for over 23 years, helping him to stand out as an outstanding Virginia Farm Bureau agent.”
