Phil Kuhl Named Parade MarshalView Printer Friendly Monday, July 31, 2017
Phil Kuhl was born and raised in Iowa and graduated from Loras College. After a short career with JC Penney Company, Phil moved to Morton with his wife Barbara. He founded Kuhl Insurance in 1979. Today, Kuhl Insurance has 30 employees.
Phil is involved with the Central Illinois Banjo Club and helped to create the Morton Fine Arts Association. He helped start the Morton Community Foundation in 2000, and then established the Kuhl Family Endowment Fund within that organization which enabled his children and grandchildren to become involved in charitable giving. Phil also helped bring The Giving Tree Garden and Sculpture to downtown Morton.
Phil has worked with the Illinois Central College Educational Foundation Board for 6 years, yearning to reinforce the importance of the college to business and residents in our area.
In Phil’s words, “Serving others, I have discovered, is the key to living a full life. I love the community and area in which we live. It has been great for our family and for our business. I also care very much about our future. Not just for my family, or business, but for others that follow us. Past generations have built schools, parks, public facilities, etc., for us. I feel the need to ‘pay it forward’ to assure a quality place to live for future generations who will call this ‘home’. Scripture suggests that when much is given, much is expected. God has been very good to us. I have found that the more we give away, the more we have to give away.”
