From staff reports

Petty was one of 300 of the firm's 12,000 financial advisors to receive the Jack Phelan award.

"It's truly an honor to receive recognition for building relationships with those clients we serve," said Petty. "And it's quite inspirational to receive an award named after a firm legend such as Jack Phelan who was dedicated to individual investors and understood each investor's unique financial goals."

The award is named after Jack Phelan, who, after joining the firm in 1950, became one of the firm's first "TNT" brokers, traveling the countryside Tuesday through Thursday, bringing investment advice to rural investors.
