This past weekend was the 2011 Alabama FCS convention at the Perdido Beach Resort on the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast. The convention was for FCS teachers all across Alabama. The special guest speakers included the mayor of Orange Beach, the mayor of Gulf Shores, Miss Tombigbee, and many other honored guests. This convention raised money with a Dutch auction, for high school and college scholarships for students across Alabama. I was asked to donate a piece of my artwork for this 2011 ALAFCS event and was very excited to hear that the winner of my artwork was a teacher in the Birmingham area. Thank you FCS for allowing me to be a part of this educational opportunity!
