Alabama State University Wins Montgomery Chamber of Commerce Impact Maker Award for Large Business Category!
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on December 10, 2019

Alabama State University was awarded the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce's 2019 MGM Impact Maker Award for its Large Business category during the Chamber's annual luncheon on Tuesday (Dec. 10) in Montgomery.

The President of ASU, Dr. Quinton T. Ross Jr., said he is appreciative that the Chamber and those involved in selecting ASU for the esteemed award acknowledge the diligence, talent, outreach, vigor and teamwork that helps make the University a leader among its peers.

"Alabama State University is gratified that the hard work of its employees, students and alumni has been recognized by the Greater Montgomery Chamber with it being awarded the 2019 Large Business Impact Maker Award," Ross said.

"This recognition shows the community that our vision is big, but our impact is bigger," added Ross.

The University's award was one of five categories awarded as part of the Chamber's 2019 MGM Impact Maker Awards, which is the second year in a row that the Chamber’s Montgomery Business Journal held the awards campaign.



The award showcases member businesses and individuals who are making considerable impact within key goal areas of the Chamber’s Imagine a Greater Montgomery Strategy. The areas that are considered for the award-winners includes talent recruitment and education, strengthening and diversifying the local economy, transforming Montgomery’s image and increasing community capacity.

Chamber officials said that ASU and the winners in the other categories are among the catalysts that are helping to propel Montgomery forward.

“We are thrilled to be able to recognize these impact-makers who are helping to support our mission to improve the economic well-being and enhance the quality of life in our area,” said Willie Durham, chairman of the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce. “We are thankful for these award recipients and the more than 75 businesses and individuals that were nominated for the impact they have on our community.”

The 2019 Impact Maker Award winners include:
- Large Business: Alabama State University
- Midsize Business: Guardian Credit Union
- Small Business: The Montgomery Zoo
- Individual: Charles Lee, That’s My Child
- Nonprofit: Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama
