The Women Creating Legacy in Insurance Scholarship Fund honours Christie McKechnie (formerly Mills), who opened Mills Brokers Insurance Solutions in 1979.

“[McKechnie] was successful because she built her business and her relationships around the principles of integrity and accountability,” said Amy Mills, president of Mills Brokers Insurance Solutions and daughter of McKechnie.
