The Community Foundation of West Alabama named its 2018 class of Pillars of West Alabama in June at the Indian Hills Country Club. Each year, the board of directors selects recipients based on their life’s contribution to the West Alabama area. This year marked the 15th year of the program.
The Community Foundation of West Alabama has awarded the second annual Elois Zeanah Endowed Scholarship to two local students. Price McGiffert, Jr. of the University of Alabama and Valentyna Trull of Judson College are the 2017 recipients.
Do you know someone locally who is an inspiration with all they do for the community? If so, the Community Foundation of West Alabama wants to hear about it. Nominations are being accepted for the 2017 class of Pillars of West Alabama.
The Pillars program seeks to honor those whose impact and influence have made a significant and lasting difference in the development and quality of life in West Alabama. The program began in 2004 and continues annually to recognize deserving individuals.
If you would like to nominate someone for the award you may visit the CFWA website at thecfwa.org and download the application. The deadline for nominations for 2017 is January 6. The final selections for the 2017 recipients will be made by the Board members.
