Keith Carroll AYP Member Spotlight - Feb.
Name: Keith Carroll
Where do you work? Perkins Insurance Agency
What’s your job title/what do you do? Producer/Agent
Where are you from? I grew up in Abilene and attended Abilene High (Go Eagles!) and Abilene Christian University. However, my wife was a Wylie Bulldog, so we are a house divided. After graduation, I lived in Dallas for a few years and worked in finance before moving back home to Abilene about two years ago.
What do you do in your free time? In my spare time, I enjoy woodworking, listening to podcasts, drawing, spending time with friends and family, playing board games, and working on my golf game.
What does being an Abilene Young Professional mean to you? Being an Abilene Young Professional means caring about the community we live in, supporting local businesses, and most importantly making it a priority to serve the people of our community.
What’s your favorite restaurant in Abilene? Do I have to pick just one? I’m a hole-in-the-wall guy. El Pulgarcito, definitely. I also love Krua Thai and anywhere that serves chips and salsa.
Do you serve on any boards in the community or participate in any other groups? I’m involved in B.O.B.S (Breakfast on Beech Street), an organization that serves a hot breakfast and a sack lunch daily to the homeless community. I would encourage everyone to get involved with B.O.B.S. I am also involved in the Rotary Club of Abilene, the Abilene Downtown Association, and Highland Church of Christ.
