Broussard deserves honor
By The Clanton Advertiser staff
As former citizens of the year themselves, the group that decided to honor Chilton County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Penny Broussard certainly knew what it was doing.
The Thorsby resident downplayed her accomplishments— “I know there are many other people out there who deserve this honor,” she said at the meeting—but she is deserving indeed.
Broussard was chosen by a selection committee that is made up of former C.I.T.Y. Program citizens of the year.
Broussard has or does serve on the United Way Board of Directors, the C.I.T.Y. Program Board, PEECH Board, Jefferson State Community College Strategic Planning Committee, Workforce Development Council for Region 4, Existing Business Team with the Birmingham Business Alliance, Chilton County Food Innovation Center Board, Arthritis Walk Committee, and Chilton County Schools Counselor Advisory Team.
The C.I.T.Y. organization, which is designed to help at-risk students stay in school and graduate, will hold a banquet to recognize Broussard at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 19 at Alabama Power Company’s auditorium.
Congrats, again, Ms. Broussard.
