Civic Hall of Fame Nominations Due June 1

The Tuscaloosa County Civic Hall of Fame Committee is seeking nominations for the Class of 2019.

The Civic Hall of Fame seeks to honor exceptional citizens who have made significant, long-term contributions to the overall growth, development and betterment of Tuscaloosa County and its communities. Nominees must have made contributions to civic, social, religious or political growth of Tuscaloosa outside of his or her career responsibilities.

In the Civic Hall of Fame’s 18-year history, 116 individuals have been inducted, including familiar names such as Coach Paul Bryant, Snow Hinton, McDonald Hughes, Frank Moody, Munny Sokol and Maude Whatley – individuals devoted to the community, willing to share their time and energy to assist the area in growing and prospering. However, many individuals worthy of this honor have yet to be recognized, and the Civic Hall of Fame encourages individuals and organizations to nominate potential inductees. Inductees will be named at a ceremony later in the year.

The 2018 class includes Bert Bank, Jordan Plaster, Gene Poole, Dr., Malcom Portera, Ken Swindle, Harrison Taylor and Yvonne Wells.
