Volunteering through adversity garners award for Powell
Volunteering through adversity garners award for Powell: "People took notice of his years of volunteer work and how he didn't let personal challenges deter him from service this year. As a result, he is one of several nominees to be recognized in Birmingham for today's National Philanthropy Day. He will receive the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham Outstanding Professional Advisor Award.
'We were very inspired in reading the nomination. I think it spoke to us as fund-raisers,' said Diana Spencer, president of the Alabama chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, which is honoring Powell and six others at their 25th anniversary luncheon at the Sheraton Birmingham Hotel downtown."
