November 15, 2017
Watkins Insurance Group, one of the largest full-service, locally owned independent insurance agencies in central Texas, has been awarded the 2017 Rising Star honor by Susan G. Komen-Austin.
Kimberly Martinez, Human Resources Manager at Watkins Insurance Group explains that the agency embodied the “More Than Pink” attitude when encouraging employee volunteers. “We are honored to receive the Rising Star award from Komen-Austin,” says Martinez. “More than 40,000 people will lose their life to breast cancer this year. The Watkins team has been directly impacted by a breast cancer diagnosis and fight. We felt that it was important for us to help increase breast cancer awareness and educational opportunities not only for our employees, but for the central Texas area. We’re here to provide hope and help.”
The Komen-Austin Rising Star award recognizes the enthusiasm and commitment of an individual or company who has begun volunteering with Komen-Austin during the past year. The recipient of this award has made an impact with their time and talents in the short time they have been working with Komen Austin and displays the promise of continued meaningful contributions to the Affiliate and the community we serve.
