Lightfoot’s Senior Counsel and Director of Community Relations and Engagement, Liz Huntley, was recently named a “Learning for Life” honoree by Samford University’s Orlean Beeson School of Education. Since 2015, this annual award recognizes notable alumni and individuals for their work in the local community and the world.
Huntley was recognized alongside Drayton Nabers Jr., former chief justice on the Alabama supreme court, for the pair’s work with The Hope Institute, of which Huntley is a co-founder. Established in 2015, The Hope Institute has touched over 50,000 students through mentoring and leadership programs in Birmingham schools.
“Drayton and I have worked together over the years, working to just try to improve the life of underserved youth through education, in various capacities,” Huntley said. “We both had a huge commitment to character education and the impact that we thought it could have for young people.”
