Sarah Jaquez Wins the Fourth Annual InsurTech Scholarship


CARROLLTON, Texas, Oct. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Insurance Technologies Corporation (ITC), a provider of website, agency marketing, rating and management software and services, announced today Sarah Jaquez as the recipient of the 2019-2020 InsurTech Scholarship.

Jaquez, a full-time student at the University of Texas at Dallas, won the $1,500 scholarship prize for her excellent essay, academic achievements, and intent to pursue a career in the insurance industry. Jaquez first became interested in insurance after getting a part-time job at local insurance agency Quantum Alliance.

"Congratulations to Sarah Jaquez, the winner of the InsurTech Scholarship, from all of us at ITC!" said Laird Rixford, CEO of ITC. "We are pleased to award her this year's scholarship and look forward to the impact she will have on the industry."

Scholarship applicants submitted a 1,500-word essay about why they want to work in the insurance industry.

Vaquez is a junior majoring in interdisciplinary studies with a concentration in business communication and currently works at Quantum Alliance, a managing general agency in Texas, as an executive assistant and accounting specialist.

"I have acquired so much knowledge from Velma and Chuck here at Quantum," said Vaquez. "But there is still so much more to learn as an underwriter in the excess and surplus lines sector of the insurance industry."

Jaquez expects to graduate with her bachelor's degree in 2020 and plans to continue working at Quantum Alliance after graduation.

Information about the 2020-2021 InsurTech Scholarship will be available soon. Check http://www.InsurTechScholarship.com for updates.
