C.W. Bill Worley founded the Anchor Insurance Agency, Inc. in 1954. Bill began his long career in insurance in the fire and casualty business, later adding contract bonds to his line.
In addition to his passion for helping his neighbors and community, Bill was an avid sports fan and loving family man. His wife, Mary, and his oldest daughter, Lisa, have carried on his business and still continue to run the company today.

Lisa is a dedicated member at Hunter Street Baptist Church where she teaches Sunday school and leads a ladies Bible study.
The Meaning Behind the Anchor
As a Navy Veteran of World War II, the anchor was very near and dear to Bill's heart. He saw the anchor as a sign of hope, strength, and stability and he wanted those same principles to carry on into his business.
As the anchor was often a seaman’s last resort in stormy weather, it was frequently connected with steadfastness and hope. The anchor became the symbol of Bill's agency and has continued to be so for over fifty years. The anchor remains firm and steady amidst the stormy waters, and the Anchor Insurance Agency continues to protect families and individuals from the general “storms” of life.
