Jim is a graduate of Oklahoma State University, and you could say he “bleeds orange.” Jim played both basketball and football for OSU, and upon graduation served as an officer in the Marine Corp. He spent 13 years in education as a coach, teacher and principal in both Kremlin-Hillsdale and Enid.
His career in insurance began in 1978 when he became a life agent for Mid-Continent Life. He later became the Sales Manager for Metropolitan Life. In 1982 he purchased the Kremlin Insurance Agency, and then merged with Lindy Baker in 1985, to form the Baker-Harris Insurance Agency.
Jim is an avid sports fan and athlete. On the days that he isn’t working out at the Y, he’s probably taking a meeting “in the field” where he enjoys quail hunting.
