Alice Lee Award

The Commission on the Status and Role of Women (COSROW) of the Alabama – West Florida Conference annually presents the Alice Lee Award at Annual Conference.

The coveted award is named for outstanding Monroeville attorney and church leader Alice Lee.

Miss Lee was the first woman to chair the conference delegation to General Conference and is to date the only woman to do so. The award was established to help promote COSROW’s primary purpose of “challenging the church to a continuing commitment to the full and equal responsibility and participation of women in the total life and mission of the church, sharing fully in the power and in the policy making at all levels of the Church life.” Women who have been the recipients of the Alice Lee Award have not only demonstrated commitment to God and their church, but have also been bridge builders and barrier breakers for women through their leadership in the church and community. 

Deadline is May 10.
