Holliday awarded insurance fellowship

Mississippi Business Journal columnist and contributing writer Karen Kahler Holliday was recently awarded a Life and Health Insurance Foundation Fellowship at The American College at Bryn Mawr in Philadelphia, Pa.

The competitive fellowship, which enabled Holliday to study contemporary insurance issues, was awarded on the basis of published work, professional achievements and the recommendation of editors covering insurance and financial services industries.

Holliday, who earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Mississippi and a master’s from Louisiana State University, is also senior contributing editor for U.S. Banker magazine in New York. She is a past recipient of several fellowships, including the American Bankers Association’s Stonier Fellowship, the National Press Foundation’s Washington Finance/Economics Fellowship and the Prochnow Fellowship at the University of Wisconsin Graduate School of Banking.

A 1994 graduate of Leadership Mississippi, Holliday received the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Mississippi Media Advocate Award in 1995 and was one of Mississippi’s Top 40 Under 40 in 1996. She serves on several boards and is currently president of Tupelo’s Association for Excellence in Education.
