The Madison County UA Alumni Association Chapter hosts it's annual scholarship fundraiser and Kick-Off Party on August 22nd at the Westin Bridge Street .  Doors open at 5:30.

At 6:30 pm, Eddie Conyers, longtime University of Alabama football practice referee, will speak.

As the football practice referee since 1961, Conyers has come to know every head and
assistant football coach at Alabama in over 50 years.

Conyers has not only worked for The University of Alabama, but also served as the Dean of the College of Continuing Studies from 1978 until his retirement in 1993. Today, he and his team of four still throw flags and record penalties during practice for Nick Saban.

In addition to Conyers speaking, enjoy bidding on fantastic items in a silent auction.
