Cooper Permenter of Ripley was one of three students in the state to receive a Mississippi Insurance Education Foundation scholarship. He was formally recognized at the Mississippi Insurance Education Day in Jackson on September 28. Cooper is a senior majoring in insurance and risk management at the University of Mississippi.
Also at the same event, Madeline Hankins of Ripley, also a senior majoring in insurance and risk management, was awarded a National Association of Insurance Women scholarship. “During my 11 years on this campus, we have never had students from one town sweep the awards going to our students at this event,” said Dr. Larry Cox, holder of the Robertson Chair of Insurance at Ole Miss. “Cooper and Madeline are outstanding representatives of our program and I know that people in the Ripley area are just as proud of them as I am.”
Cooper is the son of Fred and Sally Permenter of Ripley, and the grandson of Dorothy Warren and the late J.W. Warren Sr. of Holly Springs.
