The Pennsylvania Society is awarding the Distinguished Citizen of the Commonwealth Award to Tom Hagen.
The award was presented during the society’s luncheon at the Bayfront Convention Center. Hagen is chairman of the Erie Insurance Group, a philanthropist, and served as Pennsylvania’s last secretary of commerce.
Hagen tells us, “You know, I’m just one of many that are involved in this. This effort in the Downtown area is really being led by the mayor and Tim NeCastro as president of Erie Insurance.”
As Erie Insurance Group continues to build its presence downtown, Hagen says he’s proud that the company is a part of the city’s turnaround. Hagen’s late wife, Susan Hirt Hagen, was a previous recipient of the award.
