Lightfoot Senior Counsel and Director of Community Relations and Engagement Liz Huntley has been named a 2021 “Alabama Female Firsts” recipient by Stillman College. Created in 2017 by Stillman President, Dr. Cynthia Warrick, the honor highlights a select group of Alabama women with distinguished leadership who serve as trailblazers in their community.
Huntley was one of 15 inductees for the 2021 class of “Alabama Female Firsts.” Among other recipients was the late Vivian Malone Jones, notable civil rights activist and the first African-American to graduate from the University of Alabama.
“As the first female president of Stillman College, it is important to recognize the numerous women leaders in our community and in Alabama who’ve made significant accomplishments,” Warrick commented. “These women have had huge careers in various trailblazing sectors – higher education, law, politics, business and law enforcement – and deserve this recognition.” Read the full article here.
