Margaret Alford Award: This award is in memory of Margaret Alford, a Hoover resident, who during her lifetime exemplified the definition of Community Service through her countless hours of voluntary support at multiple sites such as, the Hoover service Club, the Birmingham Symphony’s Decorator’s Show House, the Hoover City Schools attended by her daughters, as well as St. Peter’s Catholic Church.  Her commitment to service is memorialized in the Margaret Alford Tea Room at the annual Decorators Show House.
Recipients of the $500 each:
Sophia Liu:  The Hoover High 2017 Margret Alford Community Service Award winner is Sophia Liu.  When Sophia was asked to choose one word that she believed defined her she chose, Dedicated.  She exhibited dedication to her community in volunteering over 825 hours at places including Hoover Ambassadors, McWane Science Center, UAB Hospital, Hoover Public Library, to name a few.  Sophia’s Hoover High Science teacher wrote that even though she ranks at the top her class “her most impressive qualities are her work ethic, character, attention to detail and willingness to help others.”  Sophia will attend Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois to begin the academic journey towards a Doctor of Medicine degree specializing in Obstetrics and Gynecology.  Her dream is to open a clinic where low income patients will receive the finest of medical care.
Rachel Dees:  The Spain Park 2017 Margaret Alford community Service award winner is Rachel Dees.  Rachel has tallied over 400 community service hours.  She was named a Finley Award winner in 2013 and 2016  Rachel is a Peer Helper, a SPHS Ambassador, Hoover Belle, American Heart Association Sweetheart, volunteer at Ronald McDonald House, assistant for Special Equestrians, as well as youth leader at her church.  This year she has been named the Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen for Alabama.  A fundraiser that Rachel organized for Make-A-Wish foundation raised $4,000.  These funds provided a 4 year old child and his family the opportunity to “go to the beach”!  She wrote that “I have been impacted exponentially…because I have seen that one person, one idea can truly make a difference.”  Rachel’s defining word for herself is Compassionate..the organizational efforts for Make-A-Wish gives credence to her adjective!  Rachel will attend Auburn University this fall to pursue a degree in Business and Nonprofit/Philanthropic Administration after which she is looking forward to earning a Juris Doctorate degree.
