Montevallo’s mayor, Hollie Cost, held the annual Mayor’s breakfast, Friday Oct. 14 at the American Village.   The event gives the city the opportunity to showcase citizens who have contributed to the community through the presentation of the Hometown Hero, Spirit of Montevallo, and Excellence in Education Awards.  

“We hold the Mayor’s breakfast to honor so many of our community, who have been heroes and examples to so many others in our community,” Cost said.  “We we want to honor them and want them to be examples for others in the community so they will have individuals to hopefully follow into their footsteps.”

Earning the Hometown Hero awards this year included Esmarlda and Miguel Chavez, business owners, Zapopan; Kenneth Dukes, Reverend; Pam Phagan, Interior Designer; and Alan Blackmon, volunteer firefighter.

“This award is really important to me, our daughters, the community and our customers,” E. Chavez said.  

Montevallo’s SGA president Emri Hannah and english teacher Erma Hinton were recognized at the event.

“I was grateful for the invitation to attend the breakfast and be recognized as SGA president,” Hannah said.  “It was a honor.”

Hinton received the Excellence in Education award for outstanding service to the City of Montevallo and its schools.

Montevallo’s National Honor Society was present at the event.

“It was a well organized event and people who did not know Mrs. Cost well got to interact with her and got to see how much she loves Montevallo and how she wants to help this community,” senior NHS member Madison Wood said. “Everyone who was there got to get a good look on the history about Montevallo and how much it has changed. I was happy I got to go.”
