Mario is the Operations Manager and Associate Agent at II Max, Inc. (Allstate Insurance). Mario attended the University of Memphis with the goal of becoming a professional football player. However, things changed quickly after a series of injuries and so did his goals for his life. He has worked in the Operations Management field over 20 years. Mario has always been an advocate of education and the importance of growing your knowledge.
It was extremely easy for Mario to see the importance and need for this organization. He understands the importance of our youth identifying with their gifts and talents early on, so they can understand how and why their education is extremely important and how it plays a role in their future, even when plans change.
