Pauma/Valley Insurance Agency Inc  BBB Business Review


Pauma/Valley Insurance (PVI) Announces New Scholarship.

The Van Quackenbush Excellence in Journalism Scholarship was created by PVI to recognize and honor Mr. Quackenbush's legacy to Valley Center. Mr. Quackenbush, who passed in 2015, was the grandfather of PVI"S Manager, Brandon Strausbaugh.

Mr. Quackenbush had a long history of buying, selling and launching small-town newspapers during his career, assisted by his wife, Marjorie, who was his partner in life and business. Eventually, they wound up in Valley Center, where they began publishing the Valley Roadrunner in 1974.

In the first issue, dated March 1, 1974, Mr. Quackenbush wrote, "We think No. 10 is our last paper because we regard the "Highway to the Stars" (a historical reference to Valley Center) as the bit of acreage closest to Heaven as a body can get. And when Home is Heaven…well, what's the point in looking any farther?"

And stay they did. During his fifteen-years of owning and publishing the Valley Roadrunner, Mr. Quackenbush made a name for himself as a trusted and respected businessman and member of the community. He was involved in numerous organizations, served on many Boards, and went above and beyond to do his civic duty and to give back to the community.

Together, during their tenure in Valley Center, the Quackenbushs forged a legacy of honor and integrity in both their personal and professional lives.

It is PVI's pleasure to recognize and honor Mr. Quackenbush's contributions to our community, both personally and professionally, by awarding the Van Quackenbush Excellence in Journalism Scholarship to a deserving graduating senior from Valley Center High School, beginning in 2019.
