Jones Named United Way Campaign Chair
Longtime educator, principal and community volunteer Shelley Jones will be a familiar face raising awareness for the 2020-21 United Way of West Alabama campaign.
As chair, Jones can use contacts and connections over 58 years living and working in Tuscaloosa to help explain the needs and functions of the United Way’s 26 member agencies.
“She’s so well-known, and such a dynamic person,” said Monique Scott, the campaign director.
In addition to being the face and voice, Jones has already begun chair duties by establishing a cabinet of three dozen community members, from bankers to educators to government officials to lawyers to automakers to dentists and more, all of them reaching out to help find the funds.
