Gadsden Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Oct. 2.
Ms. Alabama Senior America announces, “Suzanne Fleming” from Eufaula, Alabama, Barbour County as our Ms. Senior America 2019 Contestant! Accompanied by Gary, her husband, Suzanne will represent the State of Alabama next month in Atlantic City, New Jersey with ladies from 44 States contending for the title of Ms. Senior America 2019.
Senior America is a national service organization (not a beauty pageant) celebrating 40 years of recognizing the accomplishments of and promoting the values of Senior Women. The Mission of Ms. Sr. America is to inspire peers and mentor youth. It was established in 1980 to promote programs and activities to defy the myths of aging, educate youth and enhance the lives of Senior Americans.
In 2015, Suzanne and Gary co-founded Eagles Club, a successful faith-based after-school program in Eufaula, Alabama for at-risk children and youth. At Eagles Club, now in its 5th year, the students are reminded daily that they soar high, they are important, they have a purpose, and they are destined for greatness. Gary was an outstanding athlete at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, and in 1969, was drafted by the Baltimore Colts in the 7th round of the NFL draft. Earlier this year he was inducted into Samford University’s Sports Hall of Fame.
Suzanne and Gary mobilize seniors to be involved in making a difference in the next generation by offering opportunities for them to be involved at the Eagles Club as tutors, teachers, and character coaches. They recruit, train, equip, encourage, support, and oversee a team of volunteers with much success.
