CHRISTOPHER GIBSON: – TAPE 1, PART 1
I feel very proud, ah, to be a Group Schooler. Group School is obviously a program which has been around since 1924, ah, this year we’re celebrating our 104th Group School Class, so it’s obviously a program which has a great deal of history behind it. Ah, and just to recognize that several senior leaders here within our organization, but also throughout the insurance industry have came through this program. I respect the history of the program and it means a lot to me to be sitting in the same company with people ah, you know, here at Aetna who have gone through this, this program.
MICHELLE COPPOLA : – TAPE 1, PART 2
I’m really proud to be a Group Schooler because it has provided me with a network of people that I can continue to keep in touch with and to serve as a resource for, as well as to work for them and work with them if they need help, and when you come across issues or challenges and have the ability to reach out to others across the country to hear how they might have managed similar situations, that’s something that I now have because of Group School, and I value that.
MARCUS DUCKWORTH : – TAPE 2 , PART 1
I feel great. Um, you know, I work out in the sales force in Atlanta, and brokers and firms, they’ve heard of the Group School program. They hold it in a very high regard, so it’s a good conversation starter. Um, people really take pride in the program who had not gone through the program – they’ve heard about it, so once they find out that you’ve gone through the program it really gives them a higher comfort level.
TEJU OWOYE : – TAPE 2 , PART 1
Proud to be a Group Schooler. I love the program. It’s great training, and once again the network that I have with the Group Schoolers is wonderful. And whenever I talk about it there’s only positive experiences, and you look back to your Group School experience and you think about all that you’ve learned, how far you’ve come in the program and I feel nothing but beaming with pride.
