  • Citizen of the year

    It’s fair to say that Montgomery is a progressive and diverse city that has often found itself in the spotlight. In recent years, much has occurred to move Montgomery forward, but it has taken the hard work, vision and faith of many citizens to make it happen.

Each one is worthy of the "Citizen of the Year" title. ...

Such is the life of George Wallace Jr., who has witnessed firsthand some of history’s most significant moments. As the son of two governors and a former public official himself, he reflects on his years as a blessed life. Now, 60 years old, he has chronicled the journey he and his family have traveled in a new book.
