Keenan Receives Special Recognition from California State Assemblyman for Innovative California Schools Abuse Prevention Center

TORRANCE, Calif. – May 6, 2015 – Keenan, the largest privately held insurance brokerage and consulting firm in California, has received special recognition from the California State Assembly for its Abuse Prevention Center and associated resources for California schools. The honor was presented by Assemblyman Bill Brough.

Brough also addressed attendees of the 2015 Keenan Summit events in Oakland and Los Angeles via video, noting that “I’m pleased to have the opportunity to recognize Keenan for its service to California schools and, in particular, for their dedication and investment in preventing child abuse. As a parent and on behalf of the California Legislature, I thank Keenan for its leadership and dedication in helping California schools provide the safe environment our children deserve in which they can learn, thrive and build a bright future.”

The Keenan Abuse Prevention Center offers a range of tools and resources that districts can utilize to achieve their goal of providing such an environment. Keenan has invested well over a million dollars creating an array of resources, such as its Keenan SafeSchools trainings that include critically needed mandated reporter training, while making the center’s online resources and abuse prevention trainings available to all California public schools at no cost.

Brough was elected to the California State Assembly this past November and serves as Vice Chair of the Assembly Committee on Revenue and Taxation. He also sits on the Assembly Committee on Jobs, Economic Development and the Economy; Accountability and Administrative Review; and Veterans Affairs. Previously, Brough served on the Dana Point City Council from 2010-2014 and operated a government affairs consulting firm from 2005-2014. He has served in a variety of other capacities including Chief of Staff to California State Assemblywoman Diane Harkey (73rd AD), White House Liaison at the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, D.C., in the Bush Administration, and Congressional Aide to former Congressman Chris Cox.
