2024 Montgomery Trip Connects Students, Business Leaders and Legislators

On March 19-20, Chamber members, community leaders,  and members of our Excellence in Leadership and Edge Student Leadership programs traveled to Montgomery to visit with legislators, tour exhibits telling the story of our state history and to learn more about our state government.

The Excellence class started their two-day trip at the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church in downtown Montgomery to learn about the history of the church from tour guide Wanda Battle. They then toured the state Capitol and took part in a Q&A session with members of the Morgan County Delegation that included Sen. Arthur Orr, Rep. Terri Collins, Rep. Parker Moore and Rep. Ernie Yarbrough.

Wednesday morning, Director of the Governor's Office of Education and Workforce Transformation Nick Moore was the breakfast speaker at the landmark Farmer’s Market Café. Afterwards, Excellence toured the National Memorial for Peace and Justice and The Legacy Museum where they were joined by the Edge Student Leadership class. Both groups enjoyed lunch at the RSA Plaza Terrace and heard from Deputy Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce Angela Till. Group pictures were made on the Capitol steps with Governor Kay Ivey.

The presenting sponsor of the Montgomery Trip was Nucor Steel Decatur. Gold sponsors were Contractor Service and Fabrication, Inc. and Shawn D. Garth, Realtor. Thank you to Adams Beverages, the annual sponsor for our Public Policy Agenda.
