Connie Hammond McChesney Developing Futures Scholarship
At Educational Services & Consulting (ESC), we believe that education is the key to success. That’s why we’re proud to announce the establishment of the Connie Hammond McChesney Developing Futures Scholarship at Polk State College after ESC’s founder, our beloved aunt, Connie Hammond McChesney. This fund is designed to provide financial assistance to students who are considering pursuing insurance adjuster education.
We understand that the cost of education can be a significant barrier for many students. By establishing this scholarship fund, we hope to help alleviate some of that financial burden and make it easier for students to achieve their academic and career goals.
Co-Owner and Chief Strategy Officer, Natalie Zimmerman said “Organizations whose mission is to assist America’s youth by encouraging higher education are welcome to help us grow this scholarship. We have had other companies express interest in making a financial contribution as well.” To contribute to the Connie Hammond McChesney Developing Futures Scholarship, organizations can easily make their contribution online by visiting:
“Connie had a vision and mission of simply helping others,” added Zimmerman. “Her philosophy was rooted in civil liberty, social equality, and the strive to service the underprivileged and less fortunate. She began this ideology early in her career and never looked back.”
Polk State College is an excellent institution that provides high-quality education and training to students from all backgrounds, Zimmerman added. We are excited to partner with them to support students who are interested in pursuing careers in insurance adjusting.
Co-owner and Chief Operations Officer, Angela Milligan added, “We created this scholarship in partnership with the Polk State College Foundation as part of ESC’s philanthropic initiative of continuing to expand educational opportunities around the country.”
Zimmerman stated “Our hope is that this scholarship will provide entrance to insurance adjuster education that previously would not have been accessible. The scholarship’s purpose is aligned with our mission that is to provide opportunities to achieve your professional goals through specialized education in insurance designations.”

For more information on how to earn your 6-20 ACA designation, we invite you to call our Clermont, Florida office at 1-800-309-2459 or read more about the accredited claims adjuster certification process on our website.
In Florida, once you earn your 6-20 accredited claims adjuster designation, you can apply to the state of Florida for your all-lines adjuster license. Once individuals obtain their Florida license, they are eligible to work in 34 of the 37 states across the United States that require an adjuster license. Those participating states will offer a reciprocal license to practice in their state, however, individuals must have a valid Florida all-lines adjuster license to be eligible for the reciprocity opportunity.
Having an all-lines adjuster license enables people to work on home insurance claims, auto and RV insurance claims and property insurance claims. You would have the flexibility to work as a staff claims adjuster or an independent insurance adjuster.
Working as an accredited claims adjuster has been a fantastic way for people to add additional revenue to their current income stream as well as helped others take their career in a new direction. For members of the U.S. Military, our Accredited Claims Adjuster designation course has been a wonderful opportunity for retired military personnel to easily start a second career as a civilian. The skills they have acquired during their military career are transferable into a career as an Accredited Claims Adjuster.
