THE ASFA COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD PROGRAM
The ASFA Community Service Award Program is jointly sponsored by the Alabama School of Fine Arts Board of Trustees and the ASFA Foundation Board of Directors. The members of these two voluntary boards exemplify the meaning of community service through their commitment of time, talent and resources to support the school. A committee consisting of representatives from both boards will determine awards to be given to students at the annual Honors Day program in May.
The goals of the ASFA Community Service Award Program are to:
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 2018-2019 AWARDEES!

A Verification Form signed by the supervisor of the volunteer activity should be added to the file for each activity submitted by the student. Students selected for awards will submit their Verification File to the committee to confirm their eligibility for an award

TIPS FOR SUCCESS
The ASFA Community Service Award Program is made possible by a generous gift from Richard and Daphne Powell (Creative Writing, 1987), in memory and honor of Richard’s mother Wanda Waid Powell. Mrs. Powell was the daughter of a minister and also married a minister. Together, she and her husband raised two children and served numerous churches through his ministry, her beautiful piano playing, and their love of their church families and the communities in which they lived. Mrs. Powell spent her entire life in service to others, and this is a fitting commemoration of her good deeds. It is the family’s wish that the recipient continue to move forward with one hand reaching behind him or her to help others along a similar path.
