“UAH is graciously providing the space, equipment, coordination and hospitality for this event, and much effort will be going into preparing for this wonderful opportunity for the students in Madison County Schools,” Dr. Sandra W. Spivey said. Spivey works as director of secondary education for the county schools.

“As has been the case for the past three years, UAH will also be paying for transportation to and from the College Fair. This will save our school system several thousand dollars. We are very appreciative of the generosity in providing this opportunity for our students,” Spivey said.
