Madison County Democratic Women was organized in 1961 with the goal of involving women in all aspects of the political process. Today, MCDW is the oldest and largest women’s political organization in Alabama. MCDW established the JFK Scholarship Award in May 1964, just six months after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
Every year, the group awards the JFK scholarship to a graduating senior who plans to pursue post-secondary education. This year’s award is for $1,000.
