Travel insured International showed its dedication with the Student Youth Travel Association (SYTA) by donating a gift of $11,700 to the Student Youth Foundation, SYTA’s philanthropic sister organization. The Student Youth Foundation provides financial assistance and travel experience programs that impact the lives of the next generation of global citizens. SYTA is the non-profit trade association comprised of travel agent, tour operator and travel supplier members. Known as “The Voice of Student & Youth Travel ®,” SYTA works to foster integrity and professionalism among travel providers serving the student and youth group travel markets.
Kevin Herlihy, Travel Insured’s National Accounts Manager, presented the check while in Nashville Tennessee, to Bud Geissler, President of SYTA, and Kerry Montgomery, Chair of SYTA Student youth Foundation. The 2012 Travel Insured donation was a portion of the bookings for student group travel insurance received from SYTA members during the 2011-2012 youth travel year.
In addition to the donation announcement, Kevin Herlihy, formerly a member of the SYF Board of Trustees has taken the position of Chair of the SYTA Youth Foundation for the 2012-2013 year. “I am so proud of my company and its dedication to SYTA - Student Youth Foundation, by allowing me the time to chair this wonderful foundation and also with its generous donation,” explained Herlihy.
