At Barrett Insurance we believe education is critical. To show this commitment to education, we developed the Barrett Insurance "Student of the Week Award of Excellence." This award started in the fall of 2015 to honor our local students. We continue to highlight and feature select students from around the region to showcase their scholastic acumen and their impressive achievements.
Each Friday, we take the time to post our award recipients on social media. Be sure to pay close attention to our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages. We also feature award recipients on WCSR, Fridays and during Detroit Tigers games.
Local schools choose recipients of the Barrett Insurance Student of the Week Award of Excellence for various reasons. Some schools choose to highlight students based on more traditional indicators like academic and athletic prowess. Some schools recognize students who otherwise contribute to their school’s unique and robust culture. Great classmate, hard worker, positive attitude – school administrators often use these merits to select which students to highlight with our award.

The Clint Barrett Memorial South Central Michigan Barn and Farmstead Survey Project brings together local youth and adults to document Michigan's traditional barn structures. We want to increase youth awareness of the rich agricultural history of the area and preserve it for generations to come.
Barrett Insurance is working on this survey in conjunction with the Michigan Barn Preservation Network and Michigan State University. The survey will be available at the Michigan State University Museum.
Barrett Insurance needs your help. If you are willing to drive around, commit to surveying a one square mile area from the comfort of your vehicle and completing our specially designed ‘windshield survey,' (which allows us to documents barns and farmsteads without entering private property) then give us a call today to find out how you can help preserve these undocumented treasures and the legacy of our area.
With your help, we can help raise awareness about our agricultural heritage, permanently preserve our agricultural heritage at the Michigan State University Museum and Educate others for years to come about the importance of historical, architectural, and local preservation.
If you would like to get involved with the Clint Barrett Memorial South Central Michigan Barn and Farmstead Survey Project, call Barrett Insurance at (517) 849-1000.
