PBCI awards scholarships to county students

Sadie Hill and Justin Wade, both of Phil Campbell, are each awarded a scholarship by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians  for  their participation in Alabama’s livestock industry March 18 at a ceremony held in coordination with the Southeastern Livestock Exposition Rodeo. The scholarships were presented by (from left) Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries Rick Pate; PBCI tribal council member Keith Martin  and SLE President Frank Ellis. Each year, young people from each of Alabama’s 67 counties are awarded scholarships from the Tribe to aid in their future participation in youth livestock events or further their education.
