Dallas, Texas— June 2010 — Safeco® Insurance announced that Swingle Collins & Associates has been named to its President's Award HK Dent —the company’s elite agency recognition program.

Safeco's President's Award is the company's recognition for a personal insurance agency that exemplifies industry leadership, exceptional client care, superior product knowledge, and top tier company growth.  In addition to the Presidents award, Swingle Collins has been recognized as a Safeco H.
