"It's an honor to receive this year's Corporate Honoree award," said Scott Perry, President of Bankers. "Our fight against Alzheimer's disease is personal, as many of the people facing Alzheimer's are our customers. Every day our agents are visiting their homes, and our corporate employees are talking to their families and their caregivers. We see firsthand the devastating effects that this disease has on patients and their loved ones, and we are committed to doing what we can to support the Alzheimer's

Association in fighting this disease and helping to give something back to our customers and our communities."
