Emily Swinney and Cade Hall, both of Phil Campbell, are awarded scholarships by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians for their participation in Alabama’s livestock industry March 16, at a luncheon held in coordination with the Alabama Junior Beef Expo and the Southeastern Livestock Exposition Rodeo. Pictured (from left) are PBCI Tribal Council member Keith Martin, PBCI elder Billy Smith, Swinney, Hall and SLE President Jimmy Holliman. The PBCI has a proud history of supporting youth in livestock. Each year, two young people from each of Alabama’s 67 counties are awarded scholarships to aid in future participation in youth livestock events or further education.
