BRCCC hosts ribbon cutting ceremony for Beckley’s new State Farm office

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – The Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday for a new State Farm office. 

State Farm Agent Leigh Ann Long officially opened up her new Beckley office back in November but the ribbon cutting ceremony had to be postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.

But on Friday, she was able to celebrate the new office and the new opportunities she has to serve the community. 

“I’m really excited to be able to be here and help the community in this way,” she said. “I’ve actually been working with State Farm for the past 8 years with corporate and always wanted to go into agency and have my own agency, and so this was really a dream come true.” 

The office is located on 106 Sunset Dr in Beckley.
