Civic Hall of Fame

Civic Hall of Fame

"Celebrating the spirit of citizenship - the essence of leadership - and the true joy of service"

Each year, the West Alabama Chamber Foundation honors exceptional citizens who have made significant, long-term contributions to the overall quality of life of Tuscaloosa County through induction in the Tuscaloosa County Civic Hall of Fame. The Civic Hall of Fame was established during The Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama's 100th Anniversary in 2000. In 2011, the Chamber unveiled a recognition wall at Government Plaza to permanently honor the "civic giants" who have been inducted as members of the Civic Hall of Fame.
