TO CONGRATULATE GEORGETOWN BUSINESSMAN TONY JORDAN ON THIRTY-SEVEN SUCCESSFUL YEARS AS AN ALLSTATE INSURANCE AGENT, TO EXTEND BEST WISHES AS HE LEAVES ALLSTATE AND TAKES A MORE ACTIVE ROLE IN STROVIS HOLDINGS, AND TO HONOR HIM FOR HIS EXTENSIVE COMMUNITY SERVICE.
Whereas, with great pleasure, the South Carolina House of Representatives notes that Georgetown businessman Tony Jordan has completed thirty-seven successful years as an Allstate insurance agent and that now, having sold his agency, he is looking forward to having more family time and a more hands-on relationship with another of his businesses, Strovis Holdings; and
Whereas, while Tony Jordan was growing up, his father, Joe F. Jordan, instilled in him the importance of a strong work ethic. The young Tony began working as soon as the adults in his life would let him, mopping floors at International Paper's Georgetown mill. Soon, he was making food deliveries inside the mill and doing anything else he was asked to do. He worked at the cafeteria before school, after school, when he was not playing sports, and on weekends until he went to college. The experience set him up for a lifetime of achievement in business and personal relationships; and
Whereas, after leaving college, Tony Jordan set out on a successful career in the insurance business, and it's been quite a career for Tony, who began as a life insurance agent forty-three years ago for Liberty Life Insurance Company. After the passing of Georgetown's first Allstate agent, Tony took over that position, and success quickly followed. In his first year as an Allstate agent, he wrote over one million dollars of face-value life insurance, enabling him to attain life-millionaire status, and he was named Rookie of the Year. A few years later, Allstate went public on the New York Stock Exchange and allowed agents to become self-employed as captive agents. Tony immediately set up his own Allstate office and continued to build on his previous achievements, in the process winning numerous company awards; and
Whereas, he eventually established the Highmarket Business Center, which today houses the current Allstate agency, as well as Strovis Holdings, a payroll, benefits, and independent insurance agency he established twenty years ago. Tony, who already serves as president of Strovis Holdings, plans to keep working alongside his daughter, Jenna Jordan, Strovis's CEO; and
Whereas, Tony Jordan also will maintain his extensive involvement in community endeavors. He is a member of the Tidelands Health Board of Trustees and a charter member and former president of the Georgetown Rotary Breakfast Club, which has honored him with the prestigious Paul Harris Fellow designation. He was recognized as the Chamber of Commerce Distinguished Citizen of the Year in 2005 and previously was presented the American Red Cross Clara Barton Award for Meritorious Leadership. In addition, he is a past board chairman of the Georgetown County YMCA and an active member of the Georgetown Church of Christ; and
Whereas, Tony finds strength for his labors in the strong support of his family: his beautiful wife, Debbie; their two daughters, Jenna and Melody; their son-in-law, Steven Skipper; and their two charming grandchildren, Jordan and Hannah May Skipper; and
Whereas, Tony Jordan's contributions to his community already comprise a memorable legacy of enduring business and community service. His legion of friends and other admirers wish him well as he continues to serve in the days ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, congratulate Georgetown businessman Tony Jordan on thirty-seven successful years as an Allstate insurance agent, extend best wishes as he leaves Allstate and takes a more active role in Strovis Holdings, and honor him for his extensive community service.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Tony Jordan.
