YP Champion of the Month: Cliff Trehearn

Tell us about yourself. Where do you work and how long has Lincoln been home?

I was born and raised in Lincoln and have called it my home all of my life with the exception of one year spent in Phoenix, AZ.  I have been a State Farm associate for five years and have been an agent in the Haymarket since January of 2017.

How or why did you get involved with Lincoln YPG?

I initially got involved in YPG when I was a team member for an agent in Lincoln. Having graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University, I was searching for a way to meet new people and also expand my network beyond my friends from college.

Why do you love Lincoln? What keeps you here? Why did you move here?

There are a million things I love about Lincoln and those are why my wife and I choose to call Lincoln home.  I love the progressive culture of entrepreneurs always pushing the envelope and wanting to bring new ideas or businesses to the area.  We enjoy the trails, neighborhoods, and of course the emerging craft beer scene throughout Lincoln.  Also, with the Pinnacle Bank Arena bringing in today’s top attractions and numerous athletic events it creates a calendar throughout the year that is packed with fun things to do.
