“Alice has done an amazing job of building Redbud Insurance Services over the years and leading the charge of providing top level service for their customers and community of Buchanan,” said Scott McFarland, CEO of Honor Credit Union.  “Her leadership and expertise in the Insurance Industry has been a vital part of this transition and the success of Libby’s performance becoming the President.  We look forward to both the continued legacy of success for Libby driving Redbud Insurance Services into the future and celebrating Alice as she moves into retirement.  We are thankful for the hard work and care she has put into our partnership, Redbud, and the Buchanan community over the years.”
