TALLADEGA -- The Alabama State Conference of the NAACP recently held its annual convention in Orange Beach.
The Rev. Hugh O. Morris, president of the Talladega County Branch, was voted "2018 Branch President Of The Year."
"This is the second such award I've received," Morris said. "The first was in 2005. I credit the Talladega County NAACP Freedom Fighters and the citizens of Talladega for standing with and behind me. I'm grateful for them."
