31 Jan 2018 10:39 AM | Gina Jones (Administrator)

     Alabama Governor Bob Riley appointed Dr. Delores Johnson Price, former Interim Dean and then, chairperson, of the Department of Curriculum, Teaching and Educational Leadership, to an important state board beginning January 2010 through January 2013 on the Women’s Commission of Alabama.

     The Commission was created to help determine “effective policy and legislation” in areas impacting the women of Alabama.   Governor Riley stated that “my appointee will make important decisions that directly affect the citizens of Alabama”. The Governor also noted that “his appointee was chosen in part because of the importance his administration has placed on honesty and integrity”.

     Alabama Governor Robert Bentley reappointed Dr. Price to a five-year term as a representative of the Eighth Congressional District through January 2018, on the prestigious Women’s Commission of Alabama.  The commission is composed of three members of the House of Representatives, appointed by the Speaker of the House; two members of the Senate, appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate; and 10 members appointed by the Governor.

      During her tenure on the board, Price served as Secretary  and Vice-Chair of the Commission and annually sponsored a chartered bus with women from Alabama A & M University and the Greater Huntsville Chapter Links, Incorporated to attend the Impact Luncheon Event in Montgomery (AL) to honor women in the state and focus on financial Literacy.  She chaired the committee to write guidelines to create a “Junior Commission” for women under 40 years of age to be mentored by Commissioners.  Afterwards, she personally sponsored and mentored two Junior Commissioners from the Eighth congressional district.

     Although, Dr. Price has retired from the Alabama Women’s Commission after eight years of service, she has been appointed and currently serves on the Alumni Board of her Alma Mater, University of Evansville (Evansville IN) for a three year term.  She is also a graduate of Loyola University Chicago and Harvard Principal’s Academy. She is the mother of two children and one granddaughter.  She has been a member of the Greater Huntsville Chapter Links, Incorporated since 2005.
