Stillman Hosts Public Servants Recognition Day on 9/11
Stillman hosted Public Servant Recognition Day during the Tuskegee game on Saturday, September 11.
“The event celebrated the men and women who provide invaluable service to our communities and our country,” said Mary Jackson, coordinator of the event.
Prior to the football game, the Alabama Army National Guard provided free hot dogs, hamburgers, games, and prizes for students and fans.
“Aside from the exiting game against Tuskegee, we had vendors and games for people of all ages to enjoy and we invited members of the fire and police departments, along with active and retired members of the military forces,” said Jackson.
Hillcrest Junior ROTC presented colors for the pre-game show, which featured a special arrangement of the National Anthem in honor of the public servants in attendance. In addition to recognitions throughout the game, Stillman’s Blue Pride Marching Band played a tribute to the public servants during halftime.
Among those public servants in attendance were Tuscaloosa Chief of Police, Steve Anderson, Sheriff George Cook of Green County and Assistant Chief of Police for Eutaw, Luther Davis. Also, veterans from the Tuscaloosa VA Hospital attended.
All public servants and their families received free south stands tickets to the game.
“It was an honor to orchestrate the event and we were so pleased with the turnout,” said Jackson.
