Cindy is the Co-op coordinator for Lauderdale County Schools, but also serves as ATCTC’s FBLA adviser.  This year Austin is Secretary for Alabama FBLA, and his position has required a great deal of time, travel, and commitment.  Thanks to Mrs. Davis for her willingness to “go the extra mile,” and to Austin, for nominating her for this much deserved award!

Channel 19’s Michelle Stark visited the ATCTC campus today (11/4) and surprised Cindy with $319 to use with her students at school!  The clip should air on the 5:00 pm news on Wednesday, November 11.

Special Thanks to those who came out for our Survivors Paradise!

We hope we made your day as special as you are!
