He is an active member of Gamma Iota Sigma, the Vice President of Marketing for Illinois State Students in Finance, and plays for the club soccer team. Sal has worked as a financial representative at Northwestern Mutual and will be interning at Great American Insurance during the summer of 2018. Sal grew up in Arlington Heights and enjoys spending time with friends and family.

    Justin is a junior at Illinois State University and is double majoring in Risk Management & Insurance and Finance. He came to ISU pursuing a pre-law degree, but later switched to a double major in Risk Management & Insurance & Finance to better follow his passion.  Last summer, he worked as a claim intern at Atlas Financial and hopes to spend the summer of 2018 working as a licensed property/casualty producer for the Bulow Group in Tinley Park, IL.  He is a first generation college student and is from Orland Park, IL.  After graduation, he hopes to work in Chicago or the suburbs.

    Congratulations to Sal and Justin.  Their awards will be presented at Illinois State University's Katie School Student Recognition Dinner on Tuesday, April 3th.
