Bart Garrison, CIC
I started my insurance career in 1985 and joined the High Country Agency in 2005 when my family and I moved to Ruidoso. Believing that it is important to give back to the community I belong to, I have served on numerous boards including: board member, past president and current member of the Ruidoso Rotary Club; board member and chairman of the Ruidoso Valley Chamber of Commerce; board member and treasurer of the Lincoln County Home Builders Association; member and board member of One Church; member of the New Mexico Amigos; and on the Planning and Zoning Commission for Ruidoso. I truly enjoy Ruidoso and working with the best insurance team in New Mexico.
