CEO Spotlight!

State Farm Agent - ADA Lauderdale


When most little girls were playing with Barbies, Ada Lauderdale was busy stamping insurance policies with her father's insignia and checking to be sure that they were issued correctly.  Thus a love affair with the insurance industry and the people it protected began. 


In 1964 Ada started full time employment as a staff person in her father's, Raymond Ray's, State Farm Office.  With a high school diploma in hand, she completed numerous insurance and financial courses, received her property and casualty and life and health licenses and the Chartered Life Underwriter designation.  This business arrangement with Raymond lasted for over 24 years with Ada taking over more and more duties and responsibilities.

In 1990, her dream of becoming a State Farm Agent , came true.  In her new role, she achieved numerous awards, including several Regional Vice President's and

Millionaire travel awards.  Ada said, "My greatest joy is to be there in a client's time of need knowing that I have helped in the solution to a problem they may be having."

Ada has given back to her community by serving on the Boards of Haven House,

The Vicksburg-Warren Chamber of Commerce , and the Warren County Children's 

Shelter.  She was a Girl Scout leader, taught Sunday School for over 15 years and is an Elder of the First Presbyterian Church.  Ada is married to William "Bill" Lauderdale, Jr, District 4 Warren County Supervisor and has one daughter, Linda Bass, who is employed at the University of Southern Mississippi as an online student support specialist.

Ada's office is located at 2000 Drummond Street and her office hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm and Saturdays by appointment.
