Lance Wil­son State Farm named Busi­ness of the Month


Lance Wil­son State Farm cel­e­brated be­ing named Busi­ness of the Month by the Span­ish Fork Salem Area Cham­ber of Com­merce on July 13.

Lance Wil­son State Farm has con­tin­ued the fam­ily tra­di­tion of be­ing a Span­ish Fork main­stay on his­toric Main Street for sev­eral decades now, both in the form of Wil­son’s grand­par­ents and their Frost Top Drive In and his fa­ther Steve Wil­son’s State Farm agency where Wil­son is lo­cated to­day. The agency op­er­ates at 220 N. Main with its not-hard-to-spot red awning and Cougar Club logo in the front win­dow.

Wil­son presently serves as the vice pres­i­dent of the Span­ish Fork Salem Area Cham­ber of Com­merce and has been ac­tive on sev­eral com­mit­tees within the cham­ber for sev­eral years.

Dur­ing the re­cent study of the re­newal ideas for Span­ish Fork’s Main Street, Wil­son served on the com­mit­tee that was meet­ing with prop­erty own­ers and those with store­fronts. A grad­u­ate of Span­ish Fork High School, Wil­son also is CERT­trained and serves as an emer­gency vol­un­teer in the city.

Part of Wil­son’s mis­sion state­ment is “help­ing our pol­icy hold­ers to re­cover from the un­ex­pected and re­al­ize their dreams.”

Wil­son also shared with us the fol­low­ing: “I have been a State Farm agent for 13 years. My of­fice opened in Provo in 2002 and I moved to Span­ish Fork in 2010 af­ter my fa­ther Steve Wil­son re­tired. I love be­ing a State Farm agent be­cause it al­lows me the op­por­tu­nity of work­ing with so many peo­ple in the com­mu­nity that I love. I am able to in­ter­act with clients in man­ag­ing their risks and plan­ning for the fu­ture. That is such a broad ob­jec­tive that it re­ally en­com­passes nearly ev­ery­one in so­ci­ety to­day. Be­cause of that, I get to meet a va­ri­ety of peo­ple in all kinds of sit­u­a­tions. This is great be­cause it gives me many dif­fer­ent chal­lenges to tackle each and ev­ery day.”

Lance Wil­son State Farm was named Busi­ness of the Month in July by the Span­ish Fork Salem Area Cham­ber of Com­merce.
