Students and family were welcomed to the Chamber for a celebration  of accomplishment on May 21st. Our Executive Board was present and awarded each of our seven T.A.L.L students with a $1500.00 scholarship from the Chamber Foundation for participation and excellence during the 2019-2020 Academic School year.  This is our 7th year with the T.A.L.L. program and we are extremely proud of these students and the impact this program is having!

Consider making a donation to the Chamber Foundation on behalf of this program.  We would love to continue to see growth in the scholarship amount as well as the value it brings to the students who are selected to participate!  

Promoting Tomorrow’s Future

The T.A.L.L. Leadership program was created 5 years ago and has been a success throughout the community.  The students are given the opportunity to visit the Mayor while attending council meetings and pre-council meetings.  They also attend lectures hosted by local business men and woman in our area while receiving instructional education with insight of day to day practices of how to run a business successfully.  They also tour industrial plants, career centers, local schools while they find time to volunteer and help host events sponsored by the chamber.  Each student has a 4.0 or above GPA and is very deserving of participating in our program and have excelled in the class room and on the field as athletes.  Since its inception, the chamber has given away over $30,000 in scholarships to our T.A.L.L. students.  Each scholarship totals $1,000 and is given to each student that completes the program. This program has been funded by grants and fundraising efforts of SouthWest Mobile County Chamber of Commerce.  As in previous years, we are looking to our sponsors in the community to assist funding these scholarships.  We would like to give you opportunity to sponsor a student this year.  This is an opportunity to make this sponsorship in memory of a loved one or in honor of a business person, family or friend.  If you or your business would like to take part in sponsorship please contact Tina Poiroux at the Chamber Office (251)666-2488.
