Kirk Hayes Of Algona Gets CPCU Degree Eugene Murtagh, president of Druggists Mutual Insurance Co., Algona, has just received word that Kirk M. Hayes will be awarded a CPCU degree by the American Institute for Property & Liability Insurance Underwriters in San Francisco Sept. 21. The confirmation of the degree recognizes completion of technical post graduate study at Drake University the past three years. The curriculum includes specialized study in five different insurance areas and entails from 150 to 200 hours of study for each course. Kirk was one of 469 passing the final examination on a national level. In announcing the honor, Mr. Murtagh indicated that Kirk traveled over 25,000 miles to complete the course. Classes were held at Drake every Saturday morning during the regular college year with the final examination last June.
