MACOA seeks nominations for 2017 Seniors of Achievement


Montgomery, AL- The Montgomery Area Council on Aging (MACOA) is accepting nominations for the 2017 Seniors of Achievement.  2017 marks the 30th year of the Seniors of Achievement (SOA) Awards program, which recognizes seniors who have made significant lifetime contributions to their communities.  Since the inception in 1988, close to 400 seniors have been selected to receive this outstanding award.  These distinguished citizens come from every walk of life. The purpose of Seniors of Achievement is to recognize those who have truly blessed the lives of others through their community and volunteer, professional or personal achievements.  

Each year MACOA honors seniors who have made noteworthy contributions to the quality of life in the Montgomery area as well as one person who will be recognized as a Special Friend of MACOA.  These individuals who are at least 65 years of age, have made significant contributions to their community, and live in Montgomery, Autauga, Coosa, Elmore, or Tallapoosa counties. The Special Friend of MACOA award was established as an additional honor to recognize people who have contributed to the success of MACOA and its programs and service for seniors.

The Montgomery Area Council on Aging assists senior citizens by providing services to promote independent living, by offering opportunities to enhance quality of life, and by increasing awareness of senior issues.  MACOA is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year.

Nominations are being accepted now through August 17th.  To download a nomination form, to view a list of past recipients, and to learn more visit or call 334-263-0532. Awards will be presented on October 19th at a recognition luncheon to be held at the Montgomery Country Club.
