“I am honored to have received the AAF District 7 Governor's Award and humbled to be among the roster of previous recipients. The dedication I see day in and day out from members of my home club, AAF Tuscaloosa and professionals across District 7 is astounding. AAF is truly a family. I could not be more happy serving alongside my fam jam to protect and promote our profession,” said Bostick.
