The Ninth Annual Judy M. Merritt Memorial 5K & Community EGGstravaganza was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who participated and supported the event! We had so much fun in the rain and raised money for scholarships for students in need.
The annual Judy M. Merritt Memorial 5K is held in honor and memory of Jefferson State Community College’s former president Dr. Judy M. Merritt. Serving as President for 35 years, she was the first female president of an Alabama college; her leadership and vision were unparalleled. Judy, as she preferred to be called, embodied the spirit of Jefferson State and our mission to serve all in our community.
“While the dream for many has been achieved, the fight for pathways to education, equality, and inclusion continues.”
