Wallace Community College-Dothan.

The Chantal and Tommy Bagwell Foundation Inc. made a $4,000 donation to Wallace Community College-Dothan (WCCD) in support of the new 2 + 2 Poultry Production program. The program, which held the inaugural class in fall 2016, is presented in partnership with Auburn University. Harry Wilson, human resources manager of American Proteins, Inc., presented the check to WCCD on behalf of the Bagwell Foundation. These funds will be used to financially assist deserving students achieve their educational goals through the Wallace Community College Foundation's scholarship program. The first $750 scholarship was awarded spring semester 2017 to John Stevens, who is a Poultry Science major. Stevens grew up on an Alabama poultry farm in Dale County, so his decision to major in poultry production was instilled from his family background. He was a member of the inaugural class last fall and currently holds a 3.0 overall GPA. "This scholarship will help me complete my first two years at Wallace and graduate with a degree in Poultry Science from Auburn," he said.
