  1. For those who don’t know, Bob grew up in Garland, KS. He attended a one room school house there. After working at Western Insurance he went on to become CEO of State Auto Financial. He’s written several books, including The Poverty Advantage, Transforming Hard Times To Good Times and Plain Talk About Leadership (search on Amazon using Robert L. Bailey and the book title). He’s done well for a kid from Garland and remembers Fort Scott fondly, as evidenced by this nice check.
