We would like to welcome our new employee, Tina Morrison, to Athens Limestone County Tourism. Tina was born and raised here in Limestone County and is a graduate of West Limestone High School. She moved away from North Alabama in early 1990's and traveled, lived and worked in London, Australia and Mexico while employed with a global engineering construction company. She found her love of tourism while serving as the Director of the Perdido Key, FL Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center for 7 years. During her tenure there, she obtained a one million dollar tourism promotional grant to bring visitors back to the beach after the 2010 oil spill. During covid in 2020, Tina returned back to Limestone County to be closer to family and is absolutely thrilled about her new employment with Athens Limestone County Tourism. "My world travels help me relate to what visitors are looking for. I've sang the praises of Alabama all over the world and the chance to promote tourism in my hometown is simply a dream come true." Tina has 3 grown children and 3 granddaughters and her hobbies are music, camping, hiking, biking and kayaking. She will be assisting the Tourism President, Teresa Todd with Marketing, Events, and day to day operations of the Athens Limestone Visitors Center at 100 N. Beaty St. in Athens.
We welcome Tina to the team!
A note from Athens Limestone Community Association...
Athens Limestone Community Association is proud to celebrate the 2022 Black History with a film remembering the achievements of Dr. C. Eric Lincoln, a 1941 Trinity High School Graduate and his central role in U.S. history. We were honored to be contacted by Clark Atlanta University and Mrs. Lucy Lincoln to create this film for the 39th Annual C. Eric Lincoln Lectureship Series for the Clark Atlanta University under the leadership of Mr. Frank Travis and associates.
We ask the Trinity alumni and friends to pay their $100 annual pledge and we gratefully accept other donations. We are eagerly awaiting your assistance in raising the $98,000 needed in matching funds to apply for a $490,000 grant to complete the Fort Henderson Memorial and the Trinity History Center at the Trinity-Fort Henderson Complex. The ALCA has already begun to memorialize the service of U.S. Colored Troops in Athens by beginning to create the Fort Henderson Memorial, which ultimately will feature a park with monuments, historic interpretive markers and a well-lit walking trail and stone wall around the fort outline. The historic interpretive markers were created and installed in 2020, with many thanks for your support in partnership with the American Battlefield Trust.
If you are unable to be with us for this great celebration, please mail your donations to ALCA P.O. Box 1476, Athens, AL 35612, a 501 (c) (3) organization. We look forward to your support for these historic projects.
